This unique dual license program embodies the philosophy of all Simmons graduate education programs that is grounded in the principles of inclusion — that all individuals can learn and have the right to do so in a classroom within their own community and with learners their own age. Simmons offers personalized support for each student in the program which is further enhanced by the small classes and close mentoring relationships that students develop with faculty and their internship supervisors.

Our program helps student gain the expertise, knowledge and confidence to become effective and skillful inclusive elementary educators. Our students take method courses that incorporate instruction in a variety of learning styles in reading and language arts, math, social studies and science. Our students also study the cultural and historical foundation of the American school, special education laws & regulations and developmental psychology as it applies to learning and teaching strategies. With special education now considered a high need teaching area in nearly every U.S. state, our dual licensure graduates possess a highly sought set of skills and the flexibility to pursue jobs in a variety of classroom settings in both public and private schools.

Upon successful completion of the program, the Education Department will endorse students for their elementary education license and students will apply for their special education license on their own.
