Major code BS6316

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 use the 4-year plan on the Web and/or consult with their advisor about scheduling as early as possible.

Students who seek admission to Special Education courses will be subject to additional selective admission criteria beyond the Patton College of Education and Human Services’ 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 for Special Education includes application for admission to Professional Education, review of your academic record, and your professional statement. Admission applications are available on the Web and should be returned to the Office of Student Affairs in McCracken Hall. Applications should be submitted for review the first or second quarter of your sophomore year.  Application deadlines are posted on the e-News during priority registration, fall/winter quarter.  

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