Special Education

The Special Education program collaborates with the Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education and the Department of Secondary and Middle School Education to offer dual licensure (DL) programs leading to early childhood P-3 certification, elementary education K-6 certification or secondary education K-12 certification with an endorsement as Teacher of Students with Disabilities (TSD). Candidates in the elementary education/TSD program may also earn a 5-8 subject area endorsement.  In special education, we prepare outstanding special educators to work with a diverse population of students with disabilities by working collaboratively to create a dynamic partnership between faculty, students, administrators and local communities.
