Special Education

The California Commission on Teacher Credentials (CCTC) has recognized our Special Education programs with an award of excellence. Our pre-K to 12 partners recognize the quality of instruction received by our Sac State graduates. Because of this, our graduates are often the first choice for employment by many school districts and county offices. And Sac State is still the least expensive teacher-training program available in the area. It is highly cost-effective.

Candidates in our programs may attend full-time or part-time. It is up to the teacher candidate, in deliberations with their assigned full-time faculty member, to develop the program of study most appropriate to their needs. The length of time needed to complete one of our special education credentialing programs is comparable to other teacher training institutions. Our programs are designed with working professionals in mind. The coursework, which is a combination of the practical as well as the theoretical, generally begins at 4:00 or 7:00 p.m., one day a week for each class.
