Undergraduate Minor in Education

Undergraduate students interested in education can now minor in the discipline. 

We offer a minor (18 credits) focused on elementary education as well as a minor for those who have general interest in education or may wish to pursue a career in middle or high school teaching. The minor is not a teacher licensure program.

For more information please review the Undergraduate Minor in Education course of study in the UMass Lowell online catalog.

Check out Jumpstart for a way to gain valuable professional training and experience in a classroom while completing coursework for the education minor.
