Introduction

Please click here  to see School of Education and Human Development information.

The Education Minor is a 12 credit undergraduate course of study that explores cognition and learning theory, teaching methods, development across the life span and working with culturally and linguistically diverse learners in multiple types of educational settings.

The Minor is useful across many disciplines and career paths and, also, provides a foundation for students planning to become teachers. Students will be able to create an emphasis that best suits their professional goals and needs as the minor is designed to enhance many disciplinary or career paths where there may be an educational component. Students create a customized plan with a required core and a choice of other courses that complement their degree and future plans. Students who are becoming teachers and have Elementary, Early Childhood, or Special Education as a declared major are not eligible for the Education Minor.

This is an on-campus program with a variety of delivery options for many of our courses including hybrid, evening, and online courses.
