There continues to be a shortage of highly qualified teachers prepared to serve students with disabilities throughout the state of California and nationwide. When teachers participate in a relevant and thoughtful course of study with well-respected faculty members and field practitioners, it increases the likelihood that they will remain teaching in the field.

At CSUMB, you will be well prepared to meet the instructional and social needs of students with disabilities. Small class size and individual attention characterize the program. The Special Education Program at CSUMB offers the Preliminary Education Specialist Credentials in Mild to Moderate and Extensive Support Needs as stand-alone credential programs, or along with a Master of Arts in Education, emphasis in Special Education.
