Special Education

Making a difference

Are you the type of person who wants to make a lasting impact on the lives of others? Pursuing a degree in special education will allow you to make a profound difference in the life of a child or young adult who is an exceptional learner. The challenge and the reward of special education is that your career is ultimately about the life-long success of those students you have the opportunity to work with.

When you decide to major or minor in special education you aren't just joining a department - you are joining a family. Our passionate faculty and staff are committed to your growth and success as a student, and will go above and beyond in their mission to make you the best teacher you can be. A special education degree from UW-Eau Claire will equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience you need to have a tremendous impact in the lives of children and in communities.

The special education staff is dedicated and committed to not only providing a quality education, but they inspired me to be the best possible version of myself. I am lucky to have gone through the special education program and UWEC.
