Special Education Program


The special education minor  prepares teacher education candidates to earn a Cross-Categorical Special Education Certification (#801). Teacher candidates choose an emphasis area within the fields of Cognitive Disabilities (CD), Emotional Behavior Disorders (EBD), or Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). Certification courses generally follow a fall-only or spring-only course delivery model at the undergraduate level. Candidates may choose between two developmental ranges: middle childhood-early adolescence (MC-EA) (ages 6-13 years) or early adolescence-adolescence (EA-A) (ages 11-21 years). Early childhood-adolescence (EC-A) candidates may choose to complete the special education certification at the EA-A developmental range. All candidates must apply for admission to the special education minor separately from other teacher education programs.
