The Special Education Program offers undergraduate and graduate programs that meet teacher licensure requirements in the state of Tennessee. A non-licensure track is also available to graduate level students who want to work in areas of developmental disabilities and related human services positions that do not require a teaching license (please see our Advanced Studies program). In addition, we offer three add-on graduate certificates that are available completely online (SPED Early Childhood Add-On, SPED High Incidence Disabilities Add-On, SPED Low Incidence Disabilities Add-On).At the undergraduate level the course of study earns a Bachelor of Science in Special Education. Successful completion of the graduate program earns a Master of Education in Special Education. Prospective students may get information about teacher licensure and non-licensure programs by clicking on the Programs & Degree Requirements link on the left.
The Special Education Program Welcomes Dr. Dawn Rowe

Her current research interests include family engagement, life skills instruction, collaboration, and transition from school to adult life for students with disabilities. She served as a teacher and transition specialist for youth with disabilities in the public-school system for 12 years. Dr. Rowe’s publications have focused on transition assessment, transition skill instruction for low incidence disabilities, and family engagement.
Dr. Rowe also will be the new academic editor for the Council for Exceptional Children’s research-to-practice journal, TEACHING Exceptional Children (TEC). We look forward to welcoming Dr. Rowe to Clemmer College!
