BSE Special Education Programs

Secondary Dual Certification

The need for Millersville's teacher education program graduates who also have a Special Education credential has been climbing steadily for years. Unlike stand-alone programs, Millersville students are dual-enrolled in a standard education program (such as Music Education or Biology Education) and complete supplemental requirements for special education certification. Students benefit from an integrated learning experience led by knowledgable faculty from various educational departments.
