Combined Programs

Students can combine programs within the special education major (for instance mild/moderate and birth to age five) or can combine a special education major with elementary education or secondary education. If students combine the degree with elementary education or secondary education, they must apply for admission to both programs and apply to student teach in both programs.

The combined programs with Significant Cognitive Disabilities or Mild/Moderate and Elementary Education are the only combined programs offered at the regional campuses.
