Special Education – General Curriculum (K-12) Major (BS)
You can change the life of exceptional learners and also serve as a resource to others who work with them. In fact, you can influence an entire school to differentiate instruction and meet the needs of every student.
What Will I Study?
The major is built around professional education and special education courses as well as interdisciplinary studies such as psychology, math, and science. You’ll get practical experience with a semester of full-time student teaching, and you’ll be well prepared to pass the tests required for licensure.
What Kind of Job Can I Get?
You will be prepared to teach special education students in grades K-12 in public or private school settings.
