About the Programs
The Special Education Department offers students multiple degrees and specialized licenses, preparing graduates for work in special education classrooms in Wisconsin and beyond. The program is accredited by the Council for Exceptional Children and the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
Students can earn cross-categorical degrees with an emphasis in learning disabilities and behavior disorders or in cognitive disabilities, as well as a degree in early childhood education. Graduates of the early childhood education program will earn licensure in both general and special education and can teach in early intervention (birth to age 3), preschool, kindergarten and early elementary grades.
All courses are taught by experienced educators who are involved in area school districts. Faculty members are solid researchers and many are recognized leaders within the Council for Exceptional Children national organization.
Students will graduate prepared to give educational assessments thanks to practice they gain through the Florence Kopas Special Education Assessment Center.
Placement in field experiences in local school districts will prepare students for their required student-teaching experience. International field experiences to Cuenca, Ecuador, for example, are also available. Students can also apply for special education internships.
Students can gain valuable professional experience through participation in student chapters of the Student Council for Exceptional Children.
Graduates of the program may go on to teach in special education classrooms or pursue careers in adult services for people with disabilities.
