The Multi-Tired Systems of Support (MTSS) graduate certificate provides training for individuals who wish to build expertise in MTSS implementation for students and schools. Learning from faculty who are leaders in the field, students will explore how to accurately identify the academic and behavioral needs of individuals they work with. Graduates from MSU's MTSS program will have the skills to improve students experiences and achievements through hands-on and informed decision-making. The MTSS graduate certificate can be completed individually or in connection with the Master of Arts in Special Education program.
Graduates will be able to strongly and meaningfully contribute to a more positive school climate for students. The program will teach graduates how to adapt their work to individual student needs to improve achievement and prevent actions that may cause academic or behavioral problems.
After completing the graduate certificate in Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, Spartans will be leaders in their schools, satisfying a growing need for advocates of the academic, emotional and behavioral needs of students.
