Department Chair’s Welcome!
Welcome to the Department of Specialized Education Services (SES) at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The mission of the SES faculty is to prepare exceptional professionals who value and support the dignity and rights of all individuals through excellence in community-engaged teaching, research, and service. To accomplish our mission, we offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level programs as well as non-degree programs. We have four program areas, including Birth-Kindergarten, Professions in Deafness, Special Education Teacher Preparation, and a Ph.D in Special Education.
Please note some special features of our programs:
The Department of SES includes 18 fulltime faculty members. With over 400 students, we offer a wide range of courses, with face-to-face and online course options in some programs. SES faculty, staff, and students are enjoying our new home in the new LEEDS certified School of Education Building. The SES area of this building includes a state of the art Sign Language Lab, a collaboration space overlooking campus, and a graduate student office.
Talented, dedicated, and enthusiastic students are encouraged to take our courses, to pursue undergraduate and graduate study in SES programs; to contribute to our research projects; and to share our commitment to community-engaged teaching, research, and service.
Please take a look at our website to learn more about our faculty, programs, and course offerings. In addition, we hope you will get a sense of the kinds of research and grant work that our faculty and students are engaged in together.
Thank you for your interest in our programs.
