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.
