Minor in Education

The School of Education offers a 19-credit minor open to all undergraduates. The minor comprises 7 credits of core courses in education and 12 credits of elective courses. Courses are taught by faculty known for their teaching excellence. Courses and field experiences in the education minor introduce undergraduates to the complex interactions among the various political, cultural, social, and historical dynamics that shape educational policy and practice. Through the education minor students develop an understanding of learning and instructional practice in both formal and informal settings.

The education minor is designed to serve students with a passion for social justice who are interested in serving in the Peace Corps, leading after-school or community-based youth programs, or working in education and youth policy. Individuals who plan to teach in a K-12 school setting should explore Teacher Licensure Programs.

Students in the education minor may also be affiliated with programs offered through the proposed new center to house civic engagement and service learning activities across the campus.
