The Education undergraduate minor is composed of a selection of courses that represent careers and key topics in education-related fields. The minor is open and intended for majors outside of education to obtain an overview of educational careers and concepts. An undergraduate minor in education would be valuable to anyone interested in education and workplace training in their chosen field or in doing outreach education. This degree is not part of a licensure program and does not result in a teaching or counseling license.
A grade of C– or better is required for all courses used to complete minor requirements. Such courses cannot be taken for an S/U grade.
