Special Education

Loyola Marymount University's Special Education Program provides you with the theoretical knowledge and professional skills needed to teach students with mild/moderate disabilities within self-contained classrooms and in collaboration with general education teachers. Our program is committed to preparing you to work successfully with culturally and linguistically diverse students. You will be prepared to succeed as a classroom teacher, to excel as a site leader, and to advocate for students with learning needs. Many of our graduates teach and, or serve in leadership positions in both public, private, and non-profit settings.
