Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors)

The non-endorsable special education minor is offered to specifically prepare individuals for meeting the diverse tasks required in working with individuals with special needs. The non-endorsable minor may serve as a knowledge base plan for those wishing to work with individuals with special needs, but who do not necessarily wish to teach in a classroom. This minor is designed to provide a knowledge base for those interested in pursuing such majors as psychology, family studies, sociology, etc. A good example of the use of this minor would be an individual majoring in psychology with a non-endorsable minor in special education who plans to pursue a masters in School Psychology or become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Another example may be someone interested in pursuing a career in Social Work; this minor would be ideal for such pursuits. Please see a Special Education Program advisor to discuss options.
