Doctoral Concentration in Special Ed & Disability Policy

In conjunction with the Leadership in Urban Schools Ed.D. program at UMass Boston, the Ph.D. program in Public Policy offers a concentration in leadership in special education and disability policy to target the very serious issues that plague urban systems as they struggle with education reform, accountability of systems, and the worsening shortage of qualified special education leaders.

Summer courses in disability policy and practice frameworks and research in special education and disability policy are required for students pursing this concentration.
