The undergraduate program is designed to prepare students for licensure in special education. Students receive training in a broad based curriculum appropriate for teaching and other career options related to working with individuals with disabilities. In addition to special education coursework, students complete an academic teaching field. Undergraduate majors in Special Education obtain dual licensure in special and general education (elementary or secondary).
Our Bachelors in Special Education program is advised through the NMSU’s Center for Academic Advising and Student Support located in Garcia Annex. Degree plans for the SPED major requirements can be found on the CoE Advising pages Undergraduate Teaching Majors page.
