The Department of Special Education prepares teachers to work with learners who have special needs. At the undergraduate level, the department offers courses about exceptionalities that are required for certification of regular education teachers. Students who are interested in becoming special education teachers are encouraged to pursue teacher certification at the undergraduate level in elementary or secondary education, and then seek cross endorsement in special education at the graduate level. Contact the Department of Special Education or refer to the graduate catalog for further information.
