PreK-8 Special Education program at the Westminster College New Wilmington prepares students to teach in Pre- Kindergarten through 4th grade classrooms or in high school. 


The PreK-8 Special Education program at the Westminster College New Wilmington offers multiple opportunities to interact with preschool and/or K-12 students during the course of study. This sequential program offers experiences that expand student’s base knowledge about classroom interaction while offering comprehensive, contemporary educational theory. 

Learning outcomes

Required field experiences provide some full-time experience in a real classroom with students in general as well as special education environments. Sophomores and juniors in the Early Childhood/Special Education major work with both children and adolescents. Students interested in teaching at the secondary level select a disciplinary minor (biology, chemistry, English, etc.) and then take the accompanying program in secondary education. Music students major in music education. 

The senior year Capstone project culminates in four months of full-time teaching mentored by a master teacher. At the end of the degree students prepare for the Pennsylvania state-mandated certification examinations.
