Early Childhood Special Education
The Program Handbook contains the course sequence and syllabi that you will be using to complete your coursework. Please review carefully as this will be the handbook from which you will copy and paste course descriptions and learning targets into your course contract template.
Degree Plans, Post-Degree Plans, Program Plans
These documents will be discussed with you by your core faculty during orientation and also within the first semester of your program of study. The program plan is used to “map” your course of study by semester. Degree plans and post-degree plans are completed by the end of the first semester of study, approved by the core faculty and curriculum committee. Once completed, degree plans become an official record with the registrar’s office.
