> West Virginia University is pleased to announce the nationwide 
> availability of its online graduate program leading to teaching 
> certification in visual impairments and/or a Masters Degree in Special 
> Education: Low Vision/Blindness. If you or your colleagues are considering 
> graduate study in this area, this program provides just the right 
> combination of high quality, easy access, and reasonable cost.
>
>
>
> All courses in this program are offered entirely online through live 
> interactive class sessions as well as other web-based learning activities. 
> Out-of-state students pay the lower resident tuition rates through a 
> special agreement with the Southern Regional Education Board's Electronic 
> Campus. All field and practicum experiences are completed in the student's 
> local community, in the job setting if s/he works with students with 
> visual impairments, or in an appropriate classroom, under the supervision 
> of a qualified practitioner with online support from a university 
> supervisor.
>
>
>
> Financial support is available for eligible individuals. A federally 
> funded project is now available to provide money to support students who 
> are completing requirements to become certified in visual impairments 
> through reimbursement of ALL tuition and fees for students who promise to 
> work in the field for 2 years for each year of program support upon 
> completion. WVU also offers TEACH grant loans for individuals who agree to 
> work in a high need school system for a period of 4 years after 
> completion.

>
> This program is tailored to the requirements for teaching certification in 
> West Virginia but it meets ALL national standards in this area of 
> specialization. Individuals who work or plan to work in states other than 
> WV should contact their state education agency to determine if this 
> program will meet requirements for certification in visual impairments in 
> that state.

> WVU has over 25 years of excellence in preparing special education 
> personnel, has earned national awards for its innovative uses of distance 
> education technologies, and is fully accredited by the National Council on 
> Accreditation of Teacher Education. We have a decade of experience in
