Special Education Advising Track

The Special Education advising track is an interdisciplinary individualized study plan that combines the Liberal Studies core courses with elective courses relevant to Special Education. Students choose elective courses from the three general areas of Liberal Studies: the arts and humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences. Students also complete a research project either through the Interdisciplinary Thematic Research Seminar (LBST 482) or independent study (499) on a topic in special education.
