What will I learn?

Special Education is a Program Area in the School of Teacher Education within the College of Education & Behavioral Sciences. Graduates in the area of Special Education continue the tradition of excellence with their high levels of preparation and dedication to the profession. In recent years, students have held leadership positions at the local, state, and national levels in the professional organization, Student Council for Exceptional Children.

The Special Education/Elementary Education program combines the strong core-content instructional areas taught in elementary education with the strong differentiated-instruction skills for students with mild learning and behavior disabilities (LBD). Both skill areas must be mastered for teachers working with LBD students who receive the majority of their instruction in a general education classroom with the inclusion model at any grade level. Upon successful completion of the requirements for this new teacher program, each candidate will be eligible for job openings in either special education LBD: grades P-12 or elementary education, grades P-5.
