Special Education

Special Education ​​

 Studying special education at Grove City College prepares students to become leaders in the classroom—and in their profession at large. Students are equipped with the pedagogical, intellectual and professional tools they need to plan, assess and adapt instruction to elementary students in various ethnic settings and socio-economic groups, and with different learning styles and capabilities.

Our special education students enjoy rigorous coursework tailored to help them understand the special circumstances many children face. They are engaged in major-specific student teaching and field experiences and have access to the state-of-the-art Hamilton Curriculum Library. Students also interact with young children at our on-campus early education center.
