This program is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a certification in Special Education (PreK-12) issued after January 1, 2022.  If you are interested in completing the program sooner, please explore the Certification in PreK-4 with Special Education (PreK-8) issued until December 30, 2021, or the Certification in Special Education (PreK-8 or 7-12) issued until December 30, 2021.

Eastern University’s Special Education program strives to train highly qualified teachers who facilitate student learning, inspire student motivation, and encourage socio-emotional growth. With the shortage of special educators in our state and nationwide, our teachers can fill the gap and ensure students have access to their expertise.
