Special Education Minor

The Special Education minor is designed for individuals who desire to learn more about teaching students with special needs. The six courses in this minor will address neurodiversity, teaching, and assessment strategies specific to the field of special education, and how to work with families of exceptional learners. Teacher candidates who complete this minor will be well-positioned to add on certification as a K-12 Mild/Moderate Cross-Categorical Disabilities educator after initial certification in Elementary, Middle, or Secondary Education has been earned.

The Special Education minor requires 18 credit hours of coursework.
