The University of Nebraska at Kearney's Teacher Education Department has been the backbone of the educational system since its beginning as the Nebraska State Normal School in 1905. This extensive history of educating Nebraska’s educators brings an unmatched reputation and legacy that our graduates take with them to their schools and throughout their careers.

The Special Education 7-12 program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney is a premier undergraduate program that will prepare students to work with students with special needs in grades 7-12. Students get in the classroom early and often, and our close partnership with Kearney and area schools gives students numerous opportunities to interact in both early field experiences and student-teaching. We know the value of hands-on learning and we are here to guide you in these field experiences.
