Become that teacher who changes lives

When your career success is defined by the success you can create for others, that’s a magical thing. Pursuing a degree in any area of special education is met with challenges, yet provides even greater rewards. The path you choose may have you working with young children, young adults, or somewhere in between. The opportunities are endless and the choice is yours! 

Rigorous program + talented students = Top notch teachers

You really can’t go wrong with any of the majors offered through the special education department. With a nationwide shortage of special educators, no matter which combination program you choose, your skills and expertise will be in high demand.

The curriculum is designed to be efficient and effective, with a timeline of 4 years. Keeping in mind the COEHS mission, Blugold special education students receive teacher preparation rooted in the principles of cultural competency, diversity, technology and theories of collaborative leadership. Educators form the bedrock of communities, and our graduates leave here ready to enable all Pre-K-12 students achieve their goals.
