Developmental Cognitive Disabilities

The undergraduate special education programs at Minnesota State University, Mankato are offered at two different sites - at the Mankato main campus  and the Normandale campus in the Twin Cities Metro area. Both programs prepare undergraduate students for special education teaching positions in Minnesota, and they maintain a similar program structure. At the same time, to accommodate unique needs of students attending two different campuses, each program applies slightly different program procedures. Once admitted, students are advised to complete the program at the site (program) with which they start.

Interested students are advised to contact respective program coordinators of each program.
