Special Education

Become a Special Education Teacher!

  • Are you an outside-of-the-box problem solver who accepts the differences in others? 
  • Do you have a desire to learn about assistive technologies, differentiated instruction, and individual exceptionalities?
  • Are you ready to serve and help provide a better quality of life for individuals with exceptionalities?

If so, then it is time to start the Bachelor of Science in Special Education degree at Mississippi State University-Meridian. This degree prepares you for teacher certification in special education (grades K-12), and consists of course work, field-based learning, and a semester of teacher internship.

So, what happens after you graduate? Well, nationwide, we are in a critical shortage of qualified special education teachers, so the prospects of getting a job after graduation are strong.
