The exact number of credits needed to complete a Masters Degree

in Special education will be dependent on the chosen college or

university, and whether the individual is required to take

appropriate prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

However, in general it takes approximately 36 to 40 credit hours in

the required areas to complete the degree. How long it will take to

complete, will depend on how many courses the student is able to

take per semester, and the programs sequential nature of course

offerings. For someone who is working, it would take approximately

two to three years.
