The study employed the descriptive survey design using the ex-post facto type. 230 special education students were randomly drawn from all four levels of study in the University of Ibadan, South-West, Nigeria. Three reliable and valid instruments were used to collect data from the participants. Pearson Product Moment Correlation and Multiple regression statistics were used to analyze the data. The result indicated that emotional intelligence and course satisfaction correlated positively with participants' attitude toward a career in special education. The result further demonstrated that emotional intelligence and course satisfaction had predictive influence on the criterion measure. Based on these findings, it was suggested that appropriate strategies and policies for emotional intelligence and course satisfaction should be encourage to forestall negative intents and advance the mainstay of a positive attitude towards a career in special education among pre-service special education teachers
