Neumann's unique education curriculum offers students actual experience
in the field beginning in freshman year. Then field experiences are part
of every education course. Our professional University School Partnership
program links us to schools and school districts and provides our students
with a wide array of opportunities to put their skills and strategies
into practice early in their university career and more often.
Special Education Certification (PK-8) is offered in conjunction with
Early Elementary Education (PK-4). Student teaching experiences are provided in two settings:
one in the traditional school setting and one in a special education setting. Graduates will be able to teach in traditional early elementary
education settings (PK-4) and in special education programs for students
with mental retardation, physical disabilities, learning disabilities,
behavior disorders, autism, or multiple disabilities. Our unique partnership with Elwyn Services and Wallingford-Swarthmore School District provides our students with training in service to the autistic student, a program not duplicated anywhere in the area.
Students have the opportunity to earn certification in the following areas: Biological and General Science, English, or Social Studies. Students' official major is their area of specialty. Meanwhile, students fulfill education course requirements, gain the advantages of field experience, and complete the student teaching component.
