Special Education Electives - Undergraduate

Currently no special education degree programs are offered at the undergraduate level. However, undergraduate students at Bemidji State University may elect to take some special education courses while working on their undergraduate degree in elementary education or secondary education. 

Special education courses at the 3000 and 4000 level may be taken as electives by undergraduate students to apply to the Specific Learning Disability (SLD) or Emotional/Behavioral Disorder (EBD) licensure programs after they graduate. Undergraduate students should work in consultation with their advisors before enrolling in these classes.

NOTE: Special education electives DO NOT substitute for a specialty area for elementary education majors. These courses should appear on Graduation Plans as electives.

Credits taken at the undergraduate level may apply to special education licenses after graduation, but they cannot count toward a graduate degree
