The School of Education’s interdisciplinary minor in Education provides students the opportunity to develop an understanding of current K-12 classroom instructional practices as well as the social, political, economic, and historical factors that impact schooling in the United States. Students engage in classroom teaching through experiential learning and explore teaching in formal and informal education settings. While completing the minor does not lead directly to a teaching license, students who are interested in earning the initial license may be eligible to do so through the Bachelor’s to Master’s in Education (B2M) program.
The minor in Education consists of a minimum of 18 credits of coursework. Nine credits must be in the School of Education. Six of the nine credits must be upper-level courses (i.e., 3000 level or above).
