Welcome to the Special Education Program
The Watson College of Education offers a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Special Education (K-12) for students interested in teaching students with exceptionalities. Special Education majors select from two instructionally-oriented tracks: Adapted Curriculum or General Curriculum.
Many of the courses in the basic studies and professional studies are similar; however, the specialty area courses for adapted and general curriculum are different.
Students in the program also will have the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge in assistive technology, teaching academic skills to diverse learners, instructional design, classroom management, collaboration, and applied research.
This unique program is designed to meet the needs of working teachers with courses offered in late afternoons, evenings, and during summer sessions.
