2023-2024 CATALOG

The Academic Catalog is the official listing of courses, programs of study, academic policies and degree requirements for Loyola University Chicago. It is published every year in advance of the next academic year.

Special Education (BSEd)

In Loyola's special education program, you'll learn skills and strategies to support students with a variety of academic, social, and behavioral needs, from ages 3 to 21.

Without proper support and programming, special education students are often at risk of being overlooked or falling behind. As a Loyola-trained special education teacher, you'll be able to support every student, because our program certifies you as both a special education and elementary education teacher, with opportunities for English as a Second Language (ESL) licensure.
