Most K-12 educators are strong advocates for improved services for exceptional/disabled individuals.

Riley College of Education and Leadership. Emphasis is on services to exceptional/disabled individuals and to the related areas of special education administration including law, finance and ethics. Graduates hold leadership, administrative and teaching positions in schools and school districts and research and teaching positions at colleges and universities throughout the United States.

Each online degree specialization is designed to meet both your professional interests and the needs of your school district, college or university.
