Give Students the Skills to Succeed

If you have the heart and passion for helping students with special needs succeed in school and in life, consider earning an Endorsement in Special Education from City University of Seattle. You’ll gain the knowledge and skills to teach and support a wide range of learning abilities.

This endorsement is offered via mixed-mode format, which includes convenient in-person classes and supplemental online learning, so you can continue teaching while working toward further certification. You’ll receive educational guidance from our expert special education faculty, who will bring your learning to life by giving you real-world applications.
