Elementary/Special Education at Providence College

Why Study Elementary/Special Education at Providence College?
Our program is one of the few in New England that provides dual certification in elementary (grades 1 – 6) and special (grades 1 – 6) education. As a result, our graduates are highly sought by elementary and middle school principals.

All of our teacher education programs have been approved by the Rhode Island Department of Education, a member of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification, so our students are licensed to teach in Rhode Island upon graduation and can transfer their certificate to more than 45 states.
