The Special Education minor provides foundational preparation for working with special populations of students labeled within the categories of EBD (Emotional Behavioral Disorders) or SLD (Specific Learning Disabilities). The minor does not lead to full teacher licensure in these areas. Students completing the minor need to continue their studies on a graduate level in order to fully qualify for licensure as a special education teacher.
