Special Education Minor and Standard Exceptional Child Certificate With Generalist Endorsement, Grades K-12
The Special Education Program prepares generalists rather than specialists in any one area of special education. The Exceptional Child Certificate enables a special education teacher to work with students with special and individual needs in grades K-12. This certificate allows teachers to work in a resource program or through inclusion in a regular classroom.
Students interested in the Exceptional Child Certificate must integrate the special education courses and internship into their elementary or secondary teacher education program. Teacher candidates must also complete certification in either elementary or secondary education. The Special Education Program may be integrated with a Literacy minor. Students must pass Praxis II exams.
