Early Childhood & Special Education double major

Our program has been designed so that teacher candidates may major in both Early Childhood Education and Multi-Age Special Education.  Courses align to allow the double major to be completed in nine semesters.  The double major may be completed in four years with an additional semester of coursework completed during May or Summer terms or by completing an additional semester.  At the completion of this double major, teacher candidates will receive licensure in both Early Childhood Education and Intervention Specialist: Mild to Moderate.
