The Special Education minor is offered through the School of Education for students interested in careers in special education outside the TK-12 classroom such as in educational policy, educational nonprofit organizations, educational film productions, and museum education. Students may declare a minor so that their Special Education coursework is acknowledged on their official transcript.

In order to maximize enrollment in Special Education courses within the undergraduate program, students are strongly encouraged to declare the Special Education minor early in their career. The Special Education minor is not applicable to Liberal Studies majors (Multiple Subjects credential students).

Completion of a Special Education minor does not equal completion of the requirements for a teaching credential. Students may complete the Special Education minor without completing all of the requirements for a teaching credential.
