Program Description:

Special Education - General Curriculum K-12 - Prepares special education teachers to work in a variety of educational settings. Graduates of this program will be qualified for licensure or endorsement to teach K-12 students with varying disabilities whose individual education programs are based on the general curriculum of the school district. Candidates in the initial M.A.Ed. program enroll in two sections of student teaching and spend ten weeks student teaching at one level of education (elementary or middle/high school) and another eight weeks at a different level during a second semester to meet program requirements for K-12 internships. Resource Collaborating Teaching - The need for a more integrated service delivery and closer collaboration between general and special educators prompted the development of this emphasis in Resource/Collaborating Teaching (R/CT). The program is designed to prepare experienced teachers to work effectively with students with disabilities and their teachers in a collaborative mode. Special Education Administration - Supports the mission of the School of Education by providing initial preparation and continuing education for those who wish to serve in leadership positions in the field of special education. The Ed.D./Ph.D. option expands the tradition of the School of excellence in professional education for educating school principals and superintendents to preparing leaders to serve education institutions in a variety of leadership, research, and instructional capacities. A primary goal is to enhance the education of individuals with disabilities, including those who are culturally and linguistically diverse.
