Florida State’s online master’s program in Autism Spectrum Disorder is an innovative new program designed to address the growing demand for autism specialists. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is one of the fastest-growing disability categories in America, with 1 in 59 children diagnosed. With our online master’s program, professionals will have an opportunity to learn more about the disorder and best practices for working with students with ASD in a variety of settings.
FSU is currently ranked #13 in the nation for online graduate education programs and #20 for special education programs. These rankings are indicative of the high-quality education and preparation you’ll receive in our ASD program.
The Autism Spectrum Disorder online master’s degree is ideal for working teachers. Not only will you be able to work through the program at your own pace, but currently certified special education teachers will also be able to gain the Autism endorsement from the Florida Department of Education, opening up career options and increasing earning potential.
In this program, you will work with experienced faculty conducting important research on pressing issues related to ASD. Under the guidance of these faculty members, you will gain the training and knowledge you need to excel at helping individuals with ASD develop and achieve lifelong success.
