NEW FOR FALL 2017
Teaching special education may be one of the most challenging, and most rewarding, careers. Being a special education teacher requires commitment, compassion, focus, and exceptional organizational skills. Special education teachers can make a real difference in the lives of their students if they are fully prepared and fully committed to help students who need their talents and training the most.

About the Major

Ohio Wesleyan's new major in special education allows students to earn a Multi-Age (grades K-12) Intervention Specialist teaching license. The program also allows early childhood majors to earn an Early Childhood Concentration in Special Education. OWU's education program features rigorous classroom work and extensive field experience, with a variety of travel, research, and learning experiences that are part of The OWU Connection.
