Program Course and Sequence

The Special Education Undergraduate Program includes a combination of courses and experiences across a variety of settings. Students only enter into the "Special Education Blocks" courses in the two semesters immediately prior to taking their student teaching practicum. In other words, typically, you will complete special education courses in the last two years of your program.
