I am so grateful for the wonderful pre-service education I received at USU. The professors are knowledgeable, approachable and easy to work with. I really enjoyed all the hands-on experience I gained and felt that it helped me prepare for my first year of teaching.

For over 20 years I have interviewed, hired and supervised graduates for Utah State University's special education program. I know immediately during the interview if candidates have been trained at USU... they are confident and prepared to teach, they meet the rigorous requirements of a special education teacher in today’s educational environment.
