Ensuring every student gets a great education

Can you remember someone in your life who made a profound impact on you? Maybe when you needed it most? The Education - Special Education - Wisconsin Licensures program of Concordia University Wisconsin will give you everything you need to advance your career in this high-demand and highly rewarding field. We’ll teach you to identify characteristics of children with disabilities, assess their individual needs, serve on an IEP team, and design intervention strategies.

What to expect

Not only can you expect to learn how to be a great teacher, you’ll also learn relevant teaching strategies to implement in your classroom. You’ll learn new skills that enhance instruction and complete a practicum in your area of licensure, all while gaining the field experience required by the Department of Public Instruction.

In addition, Wisconsin teachers may have to take the Praxis II exam MS: Content Knowledge #5146 or #0146. You may also have to pass the Wisconsin Foundations of Reading Test (FORT), for which you can find further information here. (Students with a lifetime license do not have to take the FORT.)

Students who desire licensure outside of Wisconsin must contact their state department of education. Submit your transcripts to the program director for review and specific curriculum requirements.
