Why should you study Special Education at JBU

Educators can play a vital role in the development of their students with compassion and care as they teach and instruct.

Special education is more than a job; it's a calling. SPED Teachers adapt general education lessons and teach various subjects to students with mild to moderate disabilities. They have the opportunity to meet students where they are academically and socially and help them grow in those areas. 

JBU's M.Ed. in Special Education will equip you to be able to teach students with disabilities and integrate them fully into the classroom. You'll receive one-on-one support and feedback from professors, who have years of experience in the field and will graduate feeling equipped to honor God and serve students. In this program, you have the option and flexibility to work full-time while earning your degree through evening courses, synchronous, and online courses.
