Undergraduate Minor: Education Studies
A Foundation for Your Future
This minor is designed for students with a strong interest in exploring the field of education to develop a conceptual and situated understanding of schools and teaching. It will not lead to teacher licensure; rather it is designed to introduce students to the structure of American education.
