Today’s classrooms are filled with learners who have a diverse range of skill sets and personalities. The Springfield College special education teacher licensure program provides students with the proficiencies and confidence needed to connect with children in grades PreK-8, including those with exceptional learning needs.

Our students don’t just learn to teach, they’re actually in the classroom making a difference as early as their first year, thanks to our partnerships with area elementary schools. These field-based experiences with elementary children continue through year four, at which time they begin student teaching. Students learn from some of the area’s best teachers, allowing them to see first-hand the ways in which what they learn through their coursework translates into teaching in elementary classrooms.

Upon graduation, students will successfully secure employment to teach in a wide range of settings, including in urban, suburban, and rural areas.

Springfield College hosts an on-campus Homeschool Program for children.

Education in Action

The Department of Education hosts a Homeschool Program on campus where Springfield College students work with children to develop their teaching skills. Three students share their roles in the program and what they've learned.

At Springfield College, getting classroom experience isn't reserved for your student teaching experience. We encourage active learning experiences that help you develop your skills and comfort level. Sound like something you'd be interested in?
