Education Minor

(15 credits)

Pre-service students who choose not to be certified to teach can adopt a minor in Education.

Many occupations other than education - medicine, business, health, journalism, etc. - require teaching others.  The Education Department offers a minor in Education that combines courses and experiences in educational theory and practice.  Students minoring in Education will be prepared to apply skills and knowledge of lesson planning, pedagogy, and assessment to differentiated groups of learners.

Many of the courses required for minors may also fulfill or partially fulfill a General Education category. For more information, see the General Education Requirements section. Some courses required for minors may also satisfy courses required for majors. Students pursuing a minor should notify and consult with the education department chair and complete the appropriate paperwork with the Registrar’s Office so that it can be noted on the transcript.
