Special Education majors can work as consultants, and teach students with exceptionalities, ages 5 through 21.

You'll develop the knowledge and skills to design curriculum, instruction and learning environments based on varying student factors. Graduates are eligible to pursue licensure as a mild/moderate intervention specialist.

The Special Education program prepares intervention specialists to work in a variety of settings to help students with learning or behavioral needs. The intervention specialist's role in supporting students in inclusive settings is critical. This program ensures that graduates are prepared to work in collaborative and consulting roles, based on training and field experiences in both general education and non-categorical special education.

The program is accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) and approved by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). Technology is infused throughout required coursework.
