Education Minors

An education minor is ideal for students interested in exploring the possibilities of a career in education.  The coursework provides a set of experiences that will help students decide if they want to be teachers before entering a licensure program. 
  • A minor in general education would also benefit any students interested in education and issues involving children.  Parents and concerned citizens will benefit from the critical perspective and insights such a range of courses provides.  Students majoring in other disciplines will find this minor useful, for example:
  • Anthropology, sociology and linguistics majors interested in applied research in educationally related areas
  • Psychology and social work majors who will be working with families and school personnel
  • History and philosophy majors interested in the history of childhood and schooling
  • Political science and justice majors interested in child advocacy and children’s rights
