Online Submission
In order to guide organizational growth in the Master's in Education with an emphasis in Special Education program, offered at Southwestern College, an in-depth qualitative study was conducted with participants from three specific realms located in the state of Kansas. Participants from the Kansas State Department of Education, Southwestern College, and the Wichita, KS area were interviewed and provided with questionnaires on the topic of special education. In addition, the current curriculum offered at Southwestern College was superficially compared to the curriculum offered at three other specific colleges in the state of Kansas. The data was then analyzed for possible gaps in the current M.Ed. in Special Education program offered at Southwestern College and used to guide feedback to the Director of Education, with regards to the current program curriculum compared to the current needs in the field of special education.
