If you have a strong desire to advocate for all learners, to make success and achievement more accessible at any ability level, and to create stronger communities by equipping every student with skills and confidence to become engaged citizens, a UW-Eau Claire degree in special education will set you well on that path.
With any of the four majors offered in special education, you can be assured of graduating with the breadth of knowledge and experience needed to enter the 21st century classroom. With placement rates often near 100%, our Blugolds are highly sought by districts and administrators who understand the uncommon levels of school-based experiences our students receive, and the impact our Blugolds have already had in local communities prior to graduation.
We aren't going to lie—it takes a pretty special kind of person to
become a teacher in special education, but the job is as personally
rewarding as it is challenging. With the skills and experience our
Blugolds grads take into the classroom, they know that the lives of the
children they serve will be changed on a daily basis, for the better.
Hannah Pardon, ’15 | Early Childhood Special EducationFrom my very first meeting with my advisor, I knew that my decision to pursue a career in Special Education was the absolute best decision I could make in my college career. As a recent graduate and new teacher, I feel prepared, knowledgeable, and passionate about my career choice in a way that sets me apart from others.
