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 Advance Studies program). 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 buttons to the left.
