Graduate Continuing Studies
About Our Programs:
Hamline currently has various options available encompassing certificate and continuing education. Licensure options will be announced shortly. Effective fall 2013, all courses will be offered fully online through Learning House, which is a rigorously tested online learning-management system that maximizes the learning experience for both the instructor and students.
Please regularly check this page for announcements and updates. We will post updated course planners soon, as there are new course numbers.
Option 1: ASD Certificate (Does Not Lead to Licensure) 12 credits total
Assist learners with ASD become active participants in society. The combined coursework in this certificate will lead to a greater understanding of the need for collaboration between schools, the community, and the families of learners with ASD to support students' overall education plans. Any individual with at least a bachelor's degree is eligible to apply for this12-credit certificate program. Some of our current and former students in this program include graduate students from non-Hamline institutions, occupational therapists, parents, school nurses, school psychologists, speech-language pathologists, among others.
If you believe you have completed all of the requirements of the Autism Spectrum Disorders certificate, you can request your printed certificate. Your transcript will be evaluated
and your accounts checked for holds. We cannot issue certificates to
people with financial holds on their accounts. Certificates are
processed monthly and you can expect to receive it within four to six
weeks after your request. Congratulations on your hard work!
Option 2: Continuing Education or Master's Degree Elective Credits 12 credits total
Take a class or two out of interest, or complete the 12-credit ASD certificate to count as electives toward your MAED degree.

Option 3: ASD Licensure-Transition Option through MDE Credits will vary, depending on prior coursework and experiences
Learn more about how to make this transition, which is available to teachers who hold a current full-time Minnesota teaching license in
a special education field, have experience providing specialized
instruction to students with Autism Spectrum Disorders served under an
Individualized Education Program (IEP), and documented professional development prior to July 2012. In order to meet the Minnesota Department of Education's deadline, complete your Hamline coursework no later than the fall 2014 semester, and submit your "ASD Licensure Eligibility Review for Practicing Minnesota Special EducationTeachers" application directly to the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE).
