Major code BS6317

To receive a B.S.Ed. in Special Education and licensure as an Intervention Specialist, you must complete one of the professional preparation programs for teaching students with special needs and receive passing scores on the Praxis II exams. Students should also consult the Special Education program sheets (available on the Web) and meet with their advisor about scheduling as early as possible.

Students who seek admission into Special Education courses will be subject to additional selective admission criteria beyond the College of Education’s Selective Admission and Retention requirements. Enrollment in these programs is limited to promote quality instruction, appropriate field placement, and effective advising. The selective admission process into Special Education includes application for admission to Professional Education, review of your academic record, and your autobiography. Admission applications are available on the web and should be returned to the Office of Student Services in McCracken Hall. Applications should be submitted for review the third quarter of your freshman year, or soon thereafter. The application deadline is April 15, to allow for review of applications prior to fall quarter priority registration.

Specific information about programs in hearing and speech is included under the College of Health and Human Services section of this catalog.
