SPED Undergraduate Program

DSCF3302MAJOR: Special Education

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.

The Special Education Program is thrilled to offer a new accelerated masters degree in Special Education for undergraduate students. Students graduating from the five-year program will be eligible for a license in elementary education and special education. Graduates will also be eligible for TESOL and bilingual endorsements. This is one of very few programs of its kind in the United States, and graduates are highly trained and marketable. Become one of the very first at New Mexico State University to take advantage of this excellent program. For more information, contact vwhite@nmsu.edu or call 575-646-2402.
