Mild/Moderate Distance Degree

 

Program Description

A Bachelor's degree in Special Education with a Mild/Moderate teaching license allows individuals to teach students with mild to moderate disabilities in grades K-12. Students with Mild to Moderate disabilities are those who, with some special education services may still participate in the general curriculum and receive a standard diploma.

The Distance Education experience provides the opportunity for students to access a high quality program without ever leaving their local community. Distance students benefit from taking courses taught by the same professors who teach the nationally ranked program at the Logan campus. The interactive broadcast format allows students to participate in lectures and discussion with their professors and classmates from around the state.

Students are placed in USU approved K-12 classrooms within their local communities, where they apply effective teaching principles through integrated practica experiences. This provides a chance for students to immediately put into practice the instructional models and strategies they are learning. Students also benefit from the support of local site mentors who are graduates of the program.
