Special Education/Early Childhood Education Major, P-5

This is a dual major in early childhood and special education, preparing students to work in both fields in grades P-5. Students may select two additional courses and a slightly different field experience sequence to achieve Interrelated Special Education certification for grades P-12. It requires that students begin in the fall. The junior and senior years of the program are conducted in selected schools, requiring full-year clinical placements that also include academic course work.
