Special Education Certification Program

If you are a traditional student looking to earn a special education certificate, you must also major in Early Childhood, Middle Level, or Secondary Education. This is an excellent certification to have, even if you are not planning to teach children other than those with special needs because many classrooms today include special needs students at least some of the time.

Note: If you have already earned your teaching certification and are looking to return to the College for the special education add-on certificate, please visit the website of our School of Adult and Graduate Education (SAGE).
