The Special Education program, offered by Greenville University, will prepare students with the skills to communicate those needs and achievement to colleagues and parents.
Students graduating with a Special Education major, who pass state exams, will be licensed to teach all mild to moderate disabilities in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade with an LBS1. The Greenville College Special Education program will prepare you for any placement that God may call you to after graduation.
With over 300 hours of varied field experiences over your 4 years, you will be ready for a small rural school district or the diverse urban classroom. Teaching candidates are placed in regular education classrooms for co-teaching experiences, resource rooms, self-contained environments, and even life-skills classrooms beginning their Freshman year with EDU 101.
Each of these field placements contain a broad range of disabilities and are coupled with dynamic courses that focus on research to practice strategies. The Special Education program prepares teachers to be successful within a complex and diverse classroom environment, while integrating their passion to teach all of God’s children.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
Greenville College admits students on a rolling basis, so there is no specific application deadline.
