Our undergraduate Academic and Behavioral Strategist (ABS) program prepares teachers to teach students with mild/moderate learning disabilities, emotional/behavioral disorders, autism spectrum disorders, and developmental disabilities. Renewal of ABS licensure includes completion of one disability-specific license within five years, and our graduate programs are designed to facilitate that process efficiently.
Our Academic Behavioral Strategist bachelor’s degree program is offered on our Mankato campus and in Edina through a partnership with community colleges. Interested students are advised to contact Dr. Teri Wallace for information about our undergraduate program in Mankato and those interested in the Edina campus should contact Erin Harley. The Edina program requires completion of work at community college partner sites. Application information and forms can be found by clicking on the Mankato or Edina Campus links above on the left of this page. Applications to the undergraduate program on both campuses are due October 15th to being spring semester. Please see the details for each program by going to the specific campus page.
We look forward to working together to help you become a great teacher!
