Special Education Supplemental

Special Education Supplemental

The undergraduate dual certificate program in Special Education complements the School of Education’s Elementary Education program (EC-6). This program prepares candidates to teach  both general education elementary students and special education students in those grades.

The Texas certificate affiliated with this program is Special Education Supplemental. 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.”

Program Highlights:

  • Low professor-to-student ratio
  • Highly supervised field experiences
  • Field experiences focus on students with mild disabilities
  • Field experiences with both general education and special education students
  • Special Education is a high-needs area for teachers and often offers stipends

Applying to the Special Education Supplemental Program:
Students interested in the Special Education programs should inform their School of Education advisor of this 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.
