Undergraduate Bulletin

MAJOR/EMPHASES

Students majoring in special education are expected to meet Departmental Continuation Standards. These standards are designed to provide a wide range of experiences working with children, adolescents and adults with handicaps. Fulfillment of these experiences is an avenue to test your own attitudes toward working with the handicapped, as well as providing a background to complement and make the academic program more relevant. Students who do not complete the standards will need to meet with their adviser to discuss their extent of involvement.

  1. You are expected to participate in a minimum of 20 hours of field experience each semester working with the handicapped. A listing of cooperative programs and field placement forms are available in the departmental office. Students who are enrolled in a special education course that requires field experiences during a specific semester, or are enrolled in directed teaching, are exempt from this standard. Assistance in locating an appropriate field experience site/program can be obtained from your adviser.

  2. Participation in a student organization/group concerned with the handicapped or an education association is expected. Some of these organizations are: SCEC, SAS, ACE, Best Buddies, In Education, and SWEA.

  3. At least 15 credits in coursework in the Department of Special Education at this University is required prior to acceptance into Directed Teaching.

Writing Proficiency Requirement: Determined at several points in the course sequence. Advisers have a list of recommended electives for these emphases.
