The GSEHD program in Special Education for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners is one of only eight programs in the country that prepares educators to meet the cultural, language, social and learning needs of a growing number of culturally and linguistically diverse, and/or exceptional students.
The program emphasizes culturally responsive instruction, assessment and service practices in order to prepare professionals to distinguish—and differentiate appropriately—between students with a disability and students who are in the process of second language acquisition.
Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution of higher learning or an international institution that is accredited by the country’s ministry of education or comparable governmental agency.
