Getting Involved In Early Childhood Special Education

Ways To Get Involved With E.C.S.E.

Don’t worry about whether or not you can be involved; worry about which of the several options to join and take part in.  You will have internships and field experiences integrated into the curriculum and requirements of the early childhood special education major, and work at the campus daycare center to acquire both experience and a paying job.  Internships and field experiences are an important part of our program and are coordinated by the faculty.  Students spend a minimum of 45 hours in the classrooms during their sophomore year, 100 hours during their junior year, and end their program with a 16-week student teaching experience. 

Several student organizations are at your fingertips, such as:

  • Honors Program
    The BHSU Honors Program provides a basis for social activities and represents the university and its honors program positively to prospective students, their families, and the general public.
  • Kappa Delta Pi
    An honor organization that promotes excellence and recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of education.
  • Reading Council
    Provides professional development opportunities for individuals interested in issues about reading and literacy.
