Education Minor

The Graduate College of Education offers Undergraduate pathways to careers in Education.

The EDUC Minor prepares undergraduate students to explore and to prepare for careers as professional educators at the post-baccalaureate level. Courses are designed to include foundations of education roles in a variety of settings that include working with young children; students in elementary school and high school; and adults. Hands-on experience is a component of each course in the EDUC Minor and enables students to complete fieldwork requirements to enter credential programs following completion of the Bachelor's Degree. Students may satisfy both a minor and complementary studies requirements through the 12-credit EDUC Minor. Assistance and advising to complete requirements for application and admission to credential programs is provided to all EDUC Minor students.
