The Education Minor is designed for students who are interested in education, but who do not necessarily want to be a K-12 teacher.

The Education Minor Program is open to any undergraduate at CU Boulder, and it is particularly aimed at students who are interested in:

  • working in informal settings such as community-based after-school programs or youth volunteer organizations.
  • serving in the Peace Corps.
  • understanding issues of equity and social justice and who want to study more deeply how political, cultural, social, and historical dynamics shape policy and practice in education.
  • exploring education as a field of study and practice.

The Education Minor consists of two components: 7 hours of core courses and 12 hours of elective coursework. For more information, refer to the Education Minor Program Description

Note: the Education Minor does not lead to teaching licensure. Visit the Undergraduate Teacher Licensure Program to learn more about the teacher education program.
