Students interested in special education will note tht the program leads to certification in elementary education (1-6) and an area of special education certification (K-12).

It is recommended that students consider other combination certificates, for example:

Early Childhood/Elementary (Birth-Grade 6)
Elementary/Middle School (1-9)
Secondary/Middle School (5-12)

Those seeking secondary certification must complete a major in their subject specialty; those seeking middle school certification must complete a minimum of 21 specific hours area of concentration within their field of certification. Students seeking only middle school certification should be aware that such certification allows them limited career options in middle school education (Grades 5-9). Therefore, secondary and middle school education students are encouraged to consider an endorsement in a second area. Because of the complexity of both programs, the student must carefully plan and sequence their coursework.
