Once you are admitted to the undergraduate teacher education program in the Department of Educational Studies, you may begin taking classes for the certification in special education. EDUC K305/K306 and K307 are required courses for all undergraduate education majors; these two courses are also the first required courses for Special Education.
To see courses and requirements for undergraduate education majors see the Mild Intervention Check Sheet.
You need to contact one of the special education faculty members to set up an appointment to add the Special Education certification at the undergraduate level.

"... I originally started out only pursing my [undergraduate] degree in elementary education, I started to realize that more students in the average classroom may have some kind of special need and thought it was very important for me to learn more... So I added a few classes to get my special education endorsement and am glad I did because it will make me a more marketable person when I graduate ... I would highly recommend it [the program] to other students who are planning on pursing education at IPFW."
