Early Childhood/Elementary & Special Education

The Early Childhood/Elementary and Special Education Department (EESE) provides undergraduate and graduate programs for students seeking preparation to work with young children in the community, agencies, and preK-12 school settings. The goal of the teacher education programs is to prepare competent, compassionate, collaborative, and committed leaders.

The teacher education programs are approved by the Virginia Department of Education and accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) now the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). The early childhood, elementary, and special education programs provide instruction, field experiences, and clinical practices that develop excellence in teaching and skills to serve diversified populations.
