Students enrolled in the Inclusive Education Services program complete 42 units during their two years of study. Students also complete a capstone internship as part of their final semester. Internship experience coordinators work with each student to secure an on-campus work experience and connect with an off-campus internship partner. Upon completion of the program, students receive a professional services credential.

Students completing their concentration in education develop skills to work with children with or without disabilities in a variety of educational settings as teaching assistants, transition mentors and specialized instruction assistants (music, dance, sports, art). See plan of study.
From working at theme parks to helping in resort operations and food services, students who choose the hospitality concentration have found careers working as property/rental management associates, customer service agents, tour guides and other guest-service positions. See plan of study.
Students in the social services concentration often find jobs as office assistants, clerks and support staff in nursing homes, community centers, police departments, emergency units and nonprofit agencies. See plan of study.
IES students engage in opportunities offered to degree seeking UCF students (e.g., the audit of UCF courses, participate in student organizations, sporting events, live on campus, and participate in community internships). The overarching goal of IES is to prepare students for gainful employment after graduating.
