Special Education prepares personnel to work with individuals who have a variety of disabilities. The program offers alternatives in preparing professional staff to serve different age groups ranging from infant/toddler/preschool through programs serving adolescents. Selection of sequences which emphasize varying degrees of disability from mild through severe profound are available.

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 and adolescents with disabilities. Fulfillment of these experiences is an avenue to test your own attitudes toward working with disabled persons, 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 those with disabilities. Students who are enrolled in a special education course requiring 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 serving those with disabilities 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: Requirement accomplished in several courses within the emphasis course sequence.
