Education Studies Minor

The Education Studies minor helps students achieve knowledge and abilities important to citizens and parents, policy makers in the workplace and creators of learning/teaching activities. Students develop habits of mind valuable in many professions and areas of responsibility. Through the minor students are able to explore the possibility of education as a profession. Most importantly, they create a reflective framework for their own education.

Examples of possible directions for an education studies minor: A history major interested in museum education would take the minor and do the final internship in a museum, either here or abroad. A science major interested in environmental education would take the minor and do her/his final internship in an environmental education center, here or abroad.

The minor in education studies is not available to education studies majors.
