I would highly recommend Northern Illinois University or Florida State University.

Hello All,


As some on this list may already know, I am a blind high school junior who is beginning my college search. I have decided that I would like to pursue a career as a teacher of blind students (aka teacher of the visually impaired, VI teacher, etc.) So far I have found some information on the Internet on colleges which offer such a major, some as an undergraduate program and many others as a Masters program. The only information I currently have, however, is the material posted on individual college Web sites and an extensive directory from the Texas School for the Blind. I would therefore like to get some feedback from those who have walked this path before me. What are some colleges you recommend? What are the pros and cons of each program? Also, do you think it is better to obtain a BS in special ed with a consentration in visual impairment, as offered by schools such as Kutztown University in Pensylvania, or pursue a bachelor’s in special ed and wait until grad school to concentrate on blindness? Any insights and experience you could provide me would be much appreciated.


Thank you,
