The special education minor is available to undergraduate students working toward a bachelor’s degree. Because of its compatibility with other human service fields, special education provides an appropriate minor for students majoring in such areas as rehabilitation, speech and hearing science, behavior analysis, psychology, criminal justice, social work, recreation, kinesiology, and human development and family science.
Students minoring in special education must take a minimum of 18 semester hours to complete the minor, with at least 6 hours of advanced work (3000- or 4000-level). Minors must observe the system of prerequisites for courses. Departmental advisors are available for consultation on the minor in special education. Contact the College of Education Advising Office at (940) 565-2736 or the Educational Psychology Office at (940) 565-4646. Certain courses are recommended depending on the student’s major.
