About this Program

The Department of Special Education offers an undergraduate, comprehensive major which leads to licensure to teach students with learning disabilities, emotional/behavioral disorders, or developmental disabilities. Students will complete a common sequence of coursework which will culminates in a student teaching experience and specialized coursework during their senior year. After obtaining one license at the undergraduate level, students will have completed a majority of the coursework for the additional licenses, which may be obtained at the graduate level. - At the graduate level, students may obtain licensure in a program that leads to a Master of Science degree or students may be admitted to a program of study that leads to licensure only. The graduate student's program of study may be designed to emphasize education of K-12 students with learning disabilities, emotional/behavioral disorders, developmental disabilities, or physical/health disabilities (pending program approval).
