Special Education Endorsement

A special education endorsement is a highly sought after addition to an elementary education degree. In the past six years, every Clarke graduate with this endorsement has been hired or accepted to graduate school. Several of the special education courses at Clarke are taught in a Professional Development School (PDS) and some are offered in the summer. Most students can complete the elementary education degree plus the special education endorsement in nine semesters. Students who choose this endorsement are eligible for an additional two semesters of financial aid.
