The University of South Florida's Exceptional Student Education program prepares teachers to work with students with exceptionalities.

Our undergraduate and Master of Arts in Teaching programs are designed to prepare teachers to work in classrooms with students who have mild to moderate disabilities, and our doctoral program is designed to provide students with a foundation for leadership in research and teacher education programs. Graduates of our teacher preparation programs are eligible for state of Florida teacher certification in Exceptional Student Education.

Students in our graduate programs develop advanced clinical and instructional skills in working with children with exceptionalities and their families. Our graduate programs are structured so that students can maintain full-time employment while pursuing their degree. This is done through the use of nontraditional scheduling, as well as online and accelerated instruction. 

We encourage you to explore our programs and see which one works best for you!
