Recommended Course Sequence

The Multi-categorical Special Education major is designed in accordance with guidelines established by the South Carolina State Department of Education. The program consists of a general education strand; a professional education strand; and methods courses in academic areas that meet the needs of students with mild disabilities including but not limited to Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, and Emotional/Behavioral Disorders. A teacher candidate learns strategies for teaching and assessing students in K-12 grade classrooms. This program is nationally recognized by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC).

No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or add-on (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
