The undergraduate All-Level Special Education Program prepares candidates to teach only students with exceptional learning needs, from early childhood through 12th grade. Field experiences focus on students with varying levels of disability, ranging from mild to severe.
The Texas certificate affiliated with this program is Special Education EC-12. The program is designed for completion within the regular four undergraduate years of full-time study.
The Special Education program at Baylor School of Education is guided by this overriding belief:
“All children can learn, if they are carefully taught.”
- Low professor-to-student ratio
- Highly supervised field experiences
- Experience at elementary, middle and high school levels
- Experience with students with mild, moderate, severe and profound disabilities
- Experience in a variety of settings — inclusion, pull-out instruction and self-contained special education classrooms
- Special Education is a high-needs area for teachers and often offers stipends
Applying to the All-Level Special Education Program
Students interested in the Special Education programs should inform their School of Education advisors of these interests and enroll in EDP 2360: Teaching Special Education. After successful completion of this course, students will formally apply for the program. This application will be reviewed by the Special Education faculty.
