Become a Special Education Teacher
Welcome (future) educators! Nationally recognized by the Council for Exceptional Children, the IU South Bend special education teacher preparation program equips future educators with the knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to transform and enhance the lives of children with disabilities. The program is designed for individuals seeking mild-intervention licensure in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 (P-12). Earn your bachelor's degree in Special Education and learn how to teach, inspire, and support youth with disabilities in grades P-12! (If you already possess a bachelor's degree, check out graduate programs in Education.)
Teacher candidates at IU South Bend explore innovative educational theories and practices, challenge themselves, and work collaboratively with their classmates and faculty as they grow into effective, inspirational, and multiculturally-competent educators.
