Our Multicategorical Special Education degree program certifies Pre-K - Grade 12 educators to teach students with mild to moderate disabilities.

Graduates of the Columbia College Special Education program must demonstrate a mastery of national standards for beginning special education teachers. Our comprehensive program equips future teachers with the skills to be learner ready on day one to meet the needs of students with mild to moderate disabilities in PreK-Grade 12 classrooms.

Special Education is recognized by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the South Carolina Department of Education, and is nationally accredited by the NCATE/CAEP through Fall 2022.

My professors have equipped me with knowledge and skills needed to be a successful teacher by supporting and encouraging me every step of the way to include making introductions for me in other districts that led to me getting first job two months before I graduate!
