Curriculum

The Exceptional Student Education specialization is for those who wish to increase their knowledge base in the area of special education. It has been designed to provide the knowledge base needed for general educators who wish to expand their areas of certification. Coursework is offered through a blended format with expectations for assignments to be completed in K-12 schools. Most of the courses in the program require fieldwork. If you are not currently teaching in a K-12 setting, you are encouraged to volunteer once a week in a classroom.
