Master of Education, Blindness and Visual Impairment (TVI)
Children who are visually impaired can do virtually all the activities and tasks that sighted children can do, but they often need to learn to do them in a different way or using different tools or materials. Rosemont College has partnered with Salus University to offer students a direct track to a Master’s of Education (MEd) in Blindness and Visual Impairment degree in which students develop the necessary knowledge and skills required for the instruction of infants, children and youth who are totally blind or visually impaired, and those with multiple disabilities.
The Blindness and Visual Impairment Program at Salus University is noted for the following:
- Competency-based programs that offer coursework and practical experiences to develop the necessary knowledge and skills required for the instruction of infants, children and youth who are blind or visually impaired, and those with multiple disabilities
- An alignment with standards set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Council for Exceptional Children’s Division of Visual Impairment and Deaf Blindness
Students successfully completing the curriculum are prepared for certification by the state credentialing body in Pennsylvania.
*Guaranteed admission is limited to a maximum of 5Rosemont students per each Cohort (“Maximum Guarantee”). Students will be prioritized for the guaranteed reserved admission based on the date a student’s application is received by Salus. If any Rosemont student applies after the Maximum Guarantee has been met, the Rosemont students’ applications will be included in the Master of Education in Blindness and Visual Impairment (TVI) degree program application process.
Eligible students must be in good academic and social standing at Rosemont College and have completed a bachelor’s degree from Rosemont College with a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
