Welcome to the website of the department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education (CISE) at Mississippi State University. I am extremely proud of our teacher education programs, both graduate and undergraduate. We offer the only online elementary education degree in the state, both graduate and undergraduate licensure programs in secondary and foreign language education, and special education programs that prepare teachers to work with students with a wide variety of exceptionalities. You will find that our courses are rigorous, engaging, and designed around meaningful field experiences. We place an emphasis on research and engage in service to local schools and to the profession at the state and national level.
Our website has a variety of resources, including handbooks, curriculum outlines, and other resources you can use to plan your degree program. You can learn about faculty research interests and about a variety of student groups and extra curricular opportunities. We invite you to explore the resources here and to call or email us to learn more about any of our degree programs, service efforts, and research. Faculty, instructors, and staff in the department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education are excited about the many opportunities and programs our department provides. Go State!
