Special Education Degree and Programs

Home > Education > Special Education
Many students have difficulty learning in mainstream classrooms with high student-teacher ratios and standardized curricula. Many students suffer from development delays, emotional disturbance, or information-processing difficulties. Special education is an expanding field, and there is a growing need for professionals who are specifically trained to work with special-needs students.

Special Education and Career Training

Bachelor's degree programs in education are adding special education components as demand increases. If you're not interested in classroom teaching, a degree in special education can also prepare you to work as a one-on-one aide to a special-needs student. Either way, you'll learn to coordinate lesson plans with teachers, medical professionals, and parents. Master's degree programs in special education can teach you about developmental processes, as well as provide you with specific strategies to teach students with a range of challenges.
