Department of Early Childhood, Elementary & Special Education 

We are here to help you become the kind of professional educator needed to meet the challenges of 21st century classrooms. Today's teachers are expected have a solid grounding in content knowledge and utilize a wide array of instructional and management strategies to effectively teach the diverse students in their classrooms.

Most of the courses in this department are taught at the upper division level (300 or higher). This reflects the fact that these instructional methods courses build on your general education courses and your introductory level courses. Here we get down to business in dealing with the skills and knowledge necessary for teachers. 

Preparing You for Professional Growth

We keep our class size small so that you can work closely with your teachers and benefit from their years of experience working in P 12 schools prior to coming into higher education. All of our courses will require field experiences in which you will apply the skills you are learning in your classes to actual application with school children. This close interaction between faculty members and students in the classroom and in the field provides an opportunity for the kind of individual mentoring needed to support your growth into a competent professional educator.

To make sure that you're on track all of our students work closely with the full-time advisors in the College of Education Advising Center. Because there are specific requirements that need to be met to be eligible to enroll in educational methods courses, our advisors will work with you to make sure that you have all your ducks in a row.

All the faculty and staff are happy to welcome you to the Department of Early Childhood, Elementary, and Special Education. Remember we're all here to help you be successful in achieving your educational and career goals.
