The program is designed to introduce student teachers to the necessary knowledge and concepts needed for a successful career as a teacher of exceptional students or special education needs.

The Exceptional Student Education program is Florida state-approved and provides students with the initial preparation for certification. The specialized curriculum emphasizes the intricate and critical understanding of students with multiple disabilities both within the inclusive classroom and/or in special educational settings. In addition to the specialized courses, the Education program also establishes a foundation of the history of special education, including current state and federal legislation, as well as preparation in classroom management, curriculum development, and methods of teaching reading, mathematics, and life skills to special needs students.

Students can gain the best practices and proper application through the innovative virtual classroom and a solid education that parallels Florida’s standards for teaching English as a second language (ESOL) to students.
