BS Elementary/Special Education

Grand Canyon University's Bachelor of Science in Elementary/Special Education (Dual Degree) is a degree that leads to teaching in an elementary or a cross-categorical K-12 setting. It's designed for anybody who wishes to pursue a elementary or cross-categorical teaching certificate to educate children with special needs in the K-12 setting. The format and courses of the state and regionally accredited program has been made to meet the requirements of the adult learner and to fully realize talents that the teaching candidate is already in possession of. Courses are instructed by authorities in their individual fields who share knowledge and wisdom in areas of learning disadvantages, emotional and behavioral disadvantages, and other physical and cognitive disabilities. Chances are given to make use of ideas, theories, and research entirely throughout the program. Assignments within each course provide guidance to students through empirical and practice-based experiences. Teacher candidates are required to have the capability to access a K-12 special education classroom to finish the program assignments. Graduates of the program have what is needed to interact with special needs populations and implement personalized educational plans to accommodate the students' various learning, behavioral, and social needs. Teacher candidates must be ready to finish a full-time, 16-week student teaching piece near the end of the program. Eight weeks of student teaching is completed in a regular education setting and 8 weeks is completed in a resource room, self-contained class, or in a special school for students with disadvantages. These special education settings must include at least 3 or more of the following disability categories: mental retardation, learning disadvantages, emotional disadvantages, physical/health disabilities; and they must be completed with a certified special education teacher. Teacher candidates are responsible for contacting their state department of education for certification requirements and program approval. Teacher candidates should check with the Grand Canyon University Catalog and an academic advisor to obtain information regarding recent policies and procedures that are part of a teacher credentialing program.
