The Department of Secondary and Special Education offers degree programs approved by the Ohio Board of Regents and licensure programs approved by the Ohio Department of Education. All programs are accredited by TEAC, the Teacher Education Accreditation Council.  The Department is one of Xavier's largest - serving over 400 students in undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

At the undergraduate level, Secondary Education Programs offer a professional education minor that leads to a teaching license. Students also complete a licensure content area major and are awarded either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. Graduate students can apply for the X-ALT program which leads to initial licensure for career changing professionals.  In Special Education, the department awards a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in a special education licensure area.

At the graduate level, the Department offers a 30 credit hour Master of Education degree in either Secondary Education or in Special Education. Licensure concentrations will require additional course work and can be planned as part of the degree program.
