Enter as a freshman, and in five years, you will earn your liberal studies degree, teacher licensure, and a graduate degree in special education with an option for dual enrollment in elementary education.
From day one, our unique program will have you teaching special education students with us virtually by your side. Videos of your teaching and student interactions are reviewed by professors who offer personalized feedback.
