Overview of the Program

This major prepares individuals to become special education teachers for students grades K-12.  
Students major in special education with a concentration in either general curriculum or adapted curriculum.


General curriculum licensure prepares teacher candidates to work with students with disabilities who are pursuing a standard high school diploma, whereas


Adapted curriculum licensure prepares teacher candidates to work with students with disabilities who are more significantly impacted by their disability and working on a specialized curriculum.
Both licenses may be obtained through specialized advising.
