The Education - Special Education program at Baylor University offers an opportunity for students to teach students with special needs.  Most students desire their teacher certification.

About

The Education - Special Education program at Baylor University offers two different undergraduate certificate options. 

The first is an All-Level Special Education degree plan which prepares participants to only teach students with exceptional learning needs. These students range from early childhood through 12th grade.

The second plan prepares participants to teach general education to students ranging from early childhood through sixth grade. The second plan also prepares participants to teach students with exceptional learning needs. These students spend the majority of the school day in a general classroom. 

The Special Education program requires extensive field experiences to prepare students for their careers. Beginning in the spring of their sophomore year, teaching candidates will complete a variety of classroom practice. This ranges from small groups to individual tutoring. Students range from mild to severe learning disorders. In the final year of the degree program, Special Education majors will be placed full time in a school in Waco. Candidates are assigned to a special education mentor teacher and co-teach together.
