LUBBOCK - Texas Tech’s online master’s degree in special education has recently been ranked No. 11 in the country as a best buy, according to GetEducated.com.

The website ranks programs based off two criteria, affordability and credibility, according to Robin Lock, a professor in special education at Tech.

The program offers areas of specialization that are split in two different branches. There is a sensory impairment and low incidence branch, and there is a generic special education branch, according to Lock.

The special education branch allows students the option to specialize as educational diagnosticians, transition specialists or specialists in autism.

The sensory branch allows students the option to specialize in visual impairment or orientation and mobility. The sensory side also has a deaf and blind program and a deaf and hard-of-hearing program.

The only other Texas school ranked higher than Tech is the University of Texas Online Consortium.
