Special Education

Jose S. - Class of 2022

Working with students who are autistic, deaf, or have learning disabilities requires special skills and training. A special education degree or special education credential from National University will prepare you to take on this noble and important work by providing unique insight and understanding into the role of special education in schools. You’ll learn to evaluate various methodologies and develop a process for establishing effective learning strategies for students with disabilities at a school-wide level.
