The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s special education program is like earning two degrees for one price. You earn the special education degree, plus you spend 100 hours in multicultural settings to earn an ESL endorsement. Professional classroom experiences begin your first year and culminate with student-teaching your senior year at one of eight schools in the Peoria area. You also can tutor children and mentor adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s special education program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce. Education students boast a 100 percent pass rate on Illinois licensure tests and almost all find jobs within six months of graduation. They’re working throughout Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
