Special Education - Standard Exceptional Child Certificate with Generalist Endorsement, Grades K-12
The Special Education program prepares generalists rather than specialists in any one area of special education. Students interested in the endorsement of Exceptional Child Generalist K-12 must integrate the special education courses and internship into their major program that leads to a Standard Instructional teaching certificate. Obtaining the Exceptional Child Generalist endorsement enables a special education teacher to work with students with special and individual needs in grades K-12 in a resource program or through inclusion in a regular classroom.
Teacher candidates must also complete endorsement in either Elementary Education-"All Subjects K-8" or Secondary Education-"(Specific Content Area) 6-12." Courses should be taken in order listed. For endorsement, students must pass the Praxis II exam: #5543-Special Education: Core Knowledge and Mild to Moderate Application.
