Secondary Special Education

Most importantly, students have extensive field experience opportunities throughout the entire program. Before student teaching, students complete at least two semester-length field experiences in which they work alongside an experienced special education teacher (their mentor) for a minimum of 6 hours each week. During students’ final semester, they complete a semester-long field experience in a secondary setting (grades 5-12), which consists of 10 weeks of student-teaching in special education and 6 weeks of a practicum in their content area.
