All Special Education programs in the College of Education prepare teachers to provide specially designed instruction for students with exceptionalities and to work across diverse educational settings.
The AUM College of Education recognizes that the development of a competent, committed, and reflective educator means the development of a Professional Educator.
Teaching special education requires a person with a special set of skills. It takes special knowledge, strong teaching skills, compassion, humor, creativity and patience. Through coursework and laboratory experiences within the professional studies component of each program, AUM will help you develop the cognitive and affective skills that will enable you to become a successful, competent, committed, reflective educator. An internship is required.
