As a special education teacher, you can experience the reward of helping students to acquire new skills and make a lasting difference in the life of a child.

There is a national and state shortage for special education teachers. More than six million children in the United States qualify for Special Education services. These students require specialized, evidence-based instruction.

The UK Special Education program will prepare you to teach students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities in pre-school through 12th grade, or ages 5 to 21. This program prepares teachers to meet the needs of many classrooms in which these students are taught together. This may include students with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, emotional/behavioral disabilities, moderate to sever intellectual disability, severe autism, or significant physical and sensory disabilities that impair functioning.

Students who graduate from this program will be eligible for dual certification in both Learning and Behavior Disorders and Moderate and Severe Disabilities.

What makes our program stand out:

You will be taught by research leaders in the field who were all classroom teachers.

You will be out in schools and in classrooms working with teachers and students from day one.

We have strong relationships with local schools that provide unique teaching and externship experiences.

Gain the advantage of joining the EdLife Living Learning residential program.
