The K-12 Endorsement prepares graduates for K-12 teaching positions in special needs classrooms, allowing students to earn teaching certification in K-12 Special Education in Wyoming without having to earn a Master’s degree. This program will benefit teachers seeking competence in instructional and behavioral strategies for students with learning/behavioral needs.
The endorsement program is 30 hours. The program is offered through the UW Outreach School using distance delivery such as video-conferencing, online, intensive weekends, or combinations of delivery methods. Upon completion of this program students are eligible to apply to the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board for an endorsement in K-12 Special Education.
Applicants who hold a BA/BS degree and have a Wyoming teaching certificate, or have submitted an application for a Wyoming teaching certificate, are eligible to apply for admission to this graduate program. Applicants who do not have a Special Education background will need to take a Special Education foundation course prior to beginning program coursework.
The University of Wyoming was ranked 11th in the nation for best value!
