Post-Master's Specializations

Post-Master’s core classes will be completed online for all students, regardless of specialty track. Specialties noted as on-campus will require you to participate in on-campus specialty coursework. All distance learning specialties will include all online specialty coursework with clinicals completed in your area. It is important to note that online classes will have a synchronous component that requires you to attend class online at a specific day and time. Class times are listed in Eastern Standard Time.

Some of the course requirements of the specialty certification you select may be waived based on your previous coursework. The specialty track director and academic dean will review all coursework from your previous master’s degree program after admission. You will be required to submit all syllabi from your previous master’s degree program in a relatively short period of time after admission for this purpose.

You will then be required to complete the remaining course requirements at Ohio State. The exact length of this program will vary dependent on your previous master’s degree.

Please see below for more information on the available specialties. One specialty must be selected at the time of application:
