New graduate certificate in Special Education

The Graduate School of the College of Charleston now offers a Graduate Certificate in Special Education!

I was excited to learn this week that the School of Education, Health and Human Performance has approved our ninth graduate certificate! The added bonus?  General and special education teachers can begin taking classes as early as January 12!

As an educator, you can concentrate in learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, mental disabilities and multicategorical disabilities – in your backyard.  The closest graduate program in special education is in Orangeburg.  This is also beneficial to the school system, as the five local school districts lose between 15 and 80 special educators each year to relocation and retirement.  Nationally, the employment needs for special education teachers is expected to grow 15% through 2016.

To apply for January classes, submit your non-degree Special Education application by Friday, January 9.  If you have questions about this program, please contact our program representatives, Dr. Springer or Dr. Gurganus.  For questions regarding the applciation process, please contact Mrs. Hallatt.
