WSU SPED Students in Jamaica.

Welcome to the Special Education Department

Welcome to the exciting and caring profession of special education where you have the opportunity to make a difference in peoples' lives.

Special Education is a high demand field. Graduates with a Special Education degree work in a variety of settings and with students of varying abilities.

WSU prepares teachers to work with P-12 students with:
  • developmental disabilities  
  • learning disabilities  
  • early childhood special education (This program will not be admitting new students after the Fall 2012 semester).

    We are located on campuses in Winona and Rochester, Minnesota.

    If you are interested in exploring this exciting field, or if you are an educator who wants to grow, apply for one of our undergraduate or graduate programs.
