Why special education?
If you are interested in providing individualized instruction and support for students with exceptional needs, consider a concentration in special education. Talented special education teachers are in demand. Learning how to provide differentiated instruction for students with behavioral, emotional, or physical challenges are important skills for every good teacher.
With a concentration in special education, you’ll learn how to understand the unique needs of your students and how you can help ensure their learning experiences and outcomes are successful.
Once you complete all degree and program requirements, and pass your licensing exams, you'll be eligible to apply for both the elementary education and special education licenses through the Indiana Department of Education's Office of Educator Effectiveness and Licensing (OEEL).
