The Collaborative Teacher Program (CTP) leads to a undergraduate or graduate degree with certification at the Alabama Class “B,” “A,” or “AA” level, with endorsement at the elementary level as a Collaborative Special Education Teacher (K-6) and/or at the secondary level as Collaborative Special Education Teacher (6-12). Students are trained to serve students in co-taught, self-contained, and resource classrooms. Our program provides students with well balanced course work and practical experiences leading up to culmination internship. CTP interns experience student teaching in both elementary and secondary school settings.
