The demand for Special Education teachers is on the rise, and not slowing down any time soon. Individuals with special needs deserve the kinds of teachers who will highlight their abilities and give them the appropriate attention they need. If you believe you could be that teacher, a degree in Special Education from Trevecca may be right for you!

The Special Education Interventionist K-8 program is designed to prepare students for a teaching career in special education where they will assist students and assist other teachers in finding appropriate accommodations for students to be successful in school. The School of Education collaborates with area schools to provide students with observation and teaching experiences to enhance their learning. Students' education experience will culminate in student teaching or enrolling in the fifth-year master’s program for a year-long internship.

What our students say

"While at Trevecca I was amazed with the caring staff that supported me all the way to graduation and obtaining the career of my dreams. I had the opportunity to participate in the 5th year Master's Degree program where I truly saw God work in the staff of Trevecca's School of Education. The professors made sure that I was enjoying my experience at Trevecca while still preparing me for my future as a Special Educator.

Not only did Trevecca prepare me to be the best educator that I can be, but also the School of Education pushed me to grow in my walk with Christ. The most valuable lesson that I learned from Trevecca was how to incorporate my faith into my public school classroom. I'm so thankful for the lessons that prepared me for life through Trevecca's School of Education."
