Special Education

Learning/Emotional Disabilities

The Major

Teacher candidates in the ED/LD program learn how to work in settings which serve students with disabilities and their families. The program focuses on the inclusion of all students with disabilities into the general education setting. Special education graduates are prepared to teach kindergarten through secondary school aged children. In addition to coursework in mental disabilities and severe disabilities, each Special Education major also takes coursework in behavior management and general education methods.

The Program

Accredited through the Council for Exceptional Children  

Three certifications in one program! 

Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Learning Disabilities and Emotional Disabilities will be eligible to meet requirements to be a “highly qualified” teacher in three certification areas—students with learning disabilities, students with emotional disabilities and Elementary Education. The program focuses on maximizing the performance of students with disabilities in the general education setting. Special education graduates are prepared to teach kindergarten through secondary school aged children. In addition to the two certification areas listed above, each Special Education major graduates with the required coursework needed for add-on certification in Elementary Education. These credentials will greatly enhance their employment potential.
