The Ellsworth American published a University of Maine news release announcing a special education collaboration between UMaine and the University of Maine at Machias. Starting this fall, undergraduate students majoring in education at both universities will be able to count certain 400-level courses toward a master’s degree in special education. The collaboration is part of a new 4+1 program that will allow UMaine and UMM students to earn both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five years. In addition, UMaine undergrads majoring in elementary education will now be able to take special education courses remotely through the Machias campus for a concentration in special education.
