Education Minor

The College of Education minor is designed to provide foundational and experiential knowledge of the pedagogy and professional responsibilities of teaching in grades 4-8 and 7-12. There are career avenues beyond the public or private PK-12 education setting for which integrated coursework in Education offers excellent preparation and opportunity. For example, College of Business graduates often require teaching and communication skills in the private and non-profit sectors of management and training. Others graduating with degrees in content areas like Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, English or Sociology often seek graduate degrees in Education so that they may eventually become instructors in community colleges and professors at the university or college level. Persons who select the minor must declare the minor with a College of Education academic advisor.
