Special education teachers make sure all students can learn, regardless of ability or other special needs. A special education degree prepares you to tackle some of the most pressing challenges in K-12 education today. But you also have the reward of creating opportunities for students who may have given up on school. Special education majors study all four major subjects: English, math, science, and social studies in addition to learning how to teach. They also develop techniques for teaching and assessing students with special needs, including gifted learners in preparation for licensure.
