The Comprehensive Program in Special Education studies the best ways to educate and
improve the lifestyles of children, youth, and adults with a range of challenges (learning,
cognitive, behavioral, emotional, physical) and unique gifts. Our curriculum is designed
to provide a strong foundation of teaching skills, access to the latest in educational
strategies, and instructional theory. Majors are further prepared with broad subject
knowledge (reading, math, science, history, etc.) needed to teach all ages. Students
pursuing this degree will earn teacher licensure for grades K-12 with a focus on instructional
strategies and methods relevant for elementary, middle, and high school education.
Students in licensure programs also engage in extensive clinical experiences in public
schools for hands-on training, professional collaboration, and classroom management.
