Special Education Endorsement Program

Licensed teachers who would like to seek an additional endorsement in Special Education may enroll in this 18 hour graduate level track. This program has been newly redesigned to meet the standards for the new Tennessee Special Education Interventionist License. Students will choose the K-8 or 6-12 license. The program will provide students with coursework in special education that addresses a wide range of topics from disabilities to instructional strategies to legal issues.  In addition students will take two courses in applied behavior analysis. Candidates will develop effective communication and collaboration skills in special education and will master the creation, implementation, and use of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

Participants in the special education endorsement program are classified as “non-degree seeking”. The program adheres to similar admission standards and procedures and academic policies of the graduate studies in education department.
