Go above and beyond in the classroom

The work of Special Education teachers is meaningful and rewarding. The Special Education major leads to DESE certification in mild to moderate cross-categorical Special Education. You can teach K-12 students with special needs in co-teaching classrooms, resource support settings, and self-contained classrooms.

The C-SC Difference

As a special education major, you will observe in the classroom as early as your freshman year, and begin to teach micro lessons under a diverse group of teachers during your sophomore and junior years. Your senior year you will put into practice all of your education classes as you gain your student teaching experience. Your future students will love your well-rounded education.

A dream of mine has always been to teach special education. The professors at Culver-Stockton provided me with valuable courses and many hands-on opportunities to be successful in my dream. I felt more than prepared to teach special education during my student teaching experience.
