The Education Studies Minor is a 15-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.
The Education Studies Minor is useful across many disciplines and career paths. It is customized for two major audiences - those who plan to move into the teacher education program at CU Denver and students going into fields outside of K-12 teaching. Students outside of the K-12 teaching pathway 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 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.
