Career Opportunities

The field of special education continues to grow, providing excellent professional career opportunities for today's graduates. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that there will be a 35% increase in the number of jobs available in special education through 2012. Graduates of our program are qualified to assume several professional roles, including special education classroom teacher, resource room teacher, homebound instruction teacher, hospital teacher and a variety of roles in sheltered workshops and community-living arrangements for adults with disabilities. Those who become dually certified will be able to provide an expanded role in schools beyond the conventional role of classroom teacher.
