Specialist in Developmental Disabilities
About our Specialist in Developmental Disabilities Program
Niagara University’s College of Education has received approval from the New York State Education Department to offer a master of arts degree in developmental disabilities. The program, which is designed for individuals who are already employed by, or who seek employment in, agencies that provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities, was developed with the guidance and expertise of community leaders in rehabilitation and independent living.
Students may choose from two concentrations. The first is for individuals who are seeking career opportunities related to working with people with disabilities and wish to establish a firm experiential knowledge and skill base. The second is designed for individuals working in the field who wish to cultivate their leadership skills with a goal to work at administrative levels within the industry.
