In addition, this degree program will prepare classroom teachers for schools and other educational organizations that do not require teacher certification.

No matter what specialization you choose, you will graduate with:
- Skill in creating developmentally appropriate materials, activities, strategies and learning environments;
- The ability to support the development of key social skills while also preventing, or modifying, behavior problems;
- Networking, personnel and volunteer management expertise;
- Practical experience gained during an internship relating to your area of expertise;
- Proficiency in assessment and reporting methods; and
- A host of other tools for encouraging students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to become effective learners.
