The coursework for the Educational Diagnostician Certification Preparation Program can be pursued independently or as an area of emphasis with the Master of Education in Special Education. Either way, the classes are completely online, making it possible to advance your career in education without stepping into a classroom.
Although there is no application deadline, potential students are encouraged to submit all application materials at least two months prior to projected initial enrollment. Learn more.
Due to the nature of the Educational Diagnostician program, all applicants must apply as master's students. Once accepted, students who already have a master's degree will be able to pursue the certification preparation program only.
Interested in taking only one or two courses? Use Texas Tech University's Graduate Temporary Status to apply and take as many as 12 credit hours without completing the application process to a degree program.
Certificate Programs can be pursued independently or concurrently with a master's program. All coursework is offered online; some courses may require the use of Interactive Video Conferencing (IVC).
