In response to the increasing demand for certified special education teachers, DelVal University offers a program for Pennsylvania teachers already certified in another area to add special education PreK-8 or 7-12 to their Pennsylvania teaching certificate. The program integrates practical, classroom-based experiences with coursework developed and taught by local special education practitioners. Both coursework and practicum experience help make you more marketable as you pursue employment as a special educator in Pennsylvania public schools.

Candidates seeking Pennsylvania Special Education PreK-8 or 7-12 certification must have an active PA Instructional I or Instructional II teaching certificate in a corresponding area. Educators seeking Delaware Valley University/PDE special education certification are required to complete five courses (16 credits) that focus on the development and application of the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and provide instruction for students who have unique learning needs.
