About

The Department of Early Childhood, Multilingual, and Special Education (EMS) is designed and dedicated to prepare professionals for specialized services in schools, community agencies, and higher education settings. Our undergraduate and graduate students participate in coursework and clinical experiences that contain a solid theoretical and practical knowledge base in the areas of research design and implementation, teaching, and the provision of mandated services at the community, state, and national level.

EMS faculty produce new knowledge concerning critical educational and clinical issues through original research and scholarly inquiry. We promote and embrace the concept of cultural diversity and we affirm our commitment to the ethical standards of our respective disciplines.
