The integrated elementary and special education program is a professional teacher preparation program that will give you an in-depth understanding of exceptionalities and knowledge of the developmental, academic, and social needs of elementary school-age children.

Career Outlook

Employment of special education teachers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
