The Simmons graduate programs in education include General Education and Special Education.

The programs in general education have a strong reputation in area public and private schools. Supervisory administrators and teachers rate Simmons students as extremely confident, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. A leader in special education training since 1975, Simmons is a passionate advocate for including learners with special needs in general education classrooms and in community and work environments. In recent years, the significant trend toward educating learners with special needs in integrated settings has created a demand for highly qualified special education professionals who have a strong focus on content and knowledge. Consequently, Simmons graduates are in great demand.
