About

A bachelor’s degree obtained in the Special Education program of Concordia University Wisconsin gives you everything you need to embark on your career in this special field as a special educator.

Overview

Exceptional students need exceptional teachers

It takes a special person to want to help kids with special needs gain the opportunities they deserve in life. In this program, you can expect to feel fulfilled during educational coursework and real-life experiences. Choose from one of three distinct majors: early childhood special and general education, elementary/middle special and general education, and cross categorical special education.

The Special Education program of Concordia University Wisconsin has a strong liberal arts foundation with a Christian emphasis. Education coursework and fieldwork experiences begin freshman year. It offers a public education track, a Lutheran teacher diploma track for students wishing to pursue education as an LCMS church work professional, and a Christian teacher certification track for students wishing to pursue education in another Christian school setting. This program may be pursued as a special education major only, leading to K-12 certification in Cross Categorical Special Education or as a dual major combining special education and general education. Dual majors are available at the Early Childhood and Elementary/Middle School levels. The Special Education program is accredited and approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.  Job openings in this field are plentiful, as this is a high-need certification area nationally.

What to expect

In addition to coursework, you’ll experience firsthand the blessing and challenge of working with special needs children in an actual, real-world setting. You’ll be grounded in a deep understanding of child and adolescent development in mind, body, and spirit, as well as the range of exceptionalities. You’ll work to master content knowledge in addition to a wide range of instructional strategies and learner accommodations. You’ll develop skills in classroom management, curricular design and assessment, and engagement and collaboration with other educators and school stakeholders.
