Exceptional Student Education at Barry University are designed for working professionals by offering courses in the evening.


Exceptional Student Education at Barry University is designed for candidates who want to work with children and youth with mild disabilities (both academic and behavioral) in grades K-12.

Key Features

Do you have a passion for learning, helping people, and teaching? Do you believe you can make a difference by challenging young children to learn in spite of their disabilities? If you do, then you must explore the educational opportunities offered by the Department of Exceptional Student Education at Barry University. Graduate students choose to study ESE at Barry because:

  • There is an insufficient number of exceptional student education teachers in the southeast tri-county areas of South Florida (i.e., Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe Counties).
  • Barry's ESE programs are designed to prepare all graduate students with a quality education that is based on high standards and academic rigor. Instructional methods and course content are based on best practices and research.
  • ESE faculty is committed to helping you succeed.
  • Faculty-to-student ratio is low, with class sizes ranging from 12 to 15 students. The faculty will mentor you as you learn how to best teach and interact with children and adults with disabilities.
