Welcome to the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education website. The CISE department offers nationally accredited undergraduate and graduate teacher education programs in elementary education, secondary education, special education, and curriculum and instruction. Students can pursue bachelor's, master's, educational specialist, and doctoral degrees. We encourage you to explore the resources available on our website to help you learn more about our various programs, outstanding faculty, and student organizations. The handbooks and curriculum outlines available on the CISE website provide resources to assist you with planning your degree program.

You are encouraged to make an appointment for an on campus visit in order to provide you the opportunity to meet with faculty and staff, tour our facilities, and discuss the opportunities that are available to you in the Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education department at Mississippi State University.
