Special Education Minor

Alongside the elementary or secondary education program, teacher candidates at Anderson University can pursue additional testing toward a P-12 Indiana license in Exceptional Needs: Mild Intervention.

The mild intervention program is guided by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Preparation Standards, the CEC Individualized General Curriculum Specialty Skill Set, and InTASC Standards.

The program consists of 15 hours of exceptional needs coursework, practicums that increase in duration and intensity, and student teaching in a special education setting.

Our faculty is committed to a liberal arts education that aligns with Anderson University’s mission of preparing students for lives of faith and service. In the School of Education, teacher preparation also aims to promote character, commitment, and competence.

Our graduates are prepared to be effective or highly effective within the teacher evaluation model. Beyond this, they are prepared to display a personal character that is above reproach and a commitment to serving through a passion for improving their students’ lives.
