Early Childhood Education B.S. (Special Education)
A concentration in Special Education can be combined with B.S. degree programs in Early Childhood Education (PreK-4). The program prepares candidates with the knowledge base, skills, and competencies necessary to meet the needs of students with disabilities in multiple settings.
Throughout the program, teacher candidates will develop personal and professional competencies by participating in both theoretical and applied experiences. All teacher candidates complete a set of core experiences in professional education, including participation in guided fieldwork. Graduates are certified to teach in preK-grade 4 and special education PreK-12 in Pennsylvania.
The initial teacher preparation and advanced educator programs in the School of Nursing, Education, and Human Studies have been accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
