College of Education - Minor in Education
Minor in Education (M805)
There are 4 general audiences for the Minor in Education:
- Students who are not currently Education majors but who are interested in becoming Early Childhood (P-3), Elementary (K-6) or Subject-Matter (P-12) Education majors via the internal transfer process;
- Students who see having some Education courses as a benefit to their future professional goals (The Health Care industry and other corporate entities offer many opportunities for people to be engaged in educational work, but these environments do not require that one be a certified teacher);
- Students who are currently Education majors but who do not wish to continue the program after the sophomore-level courses; and
- Students who are currently Education majors but who, for a variety of reasons, do not meet Junior-level benchmarks required to move forward in the program.
In each of these cases, those who complete the Minor in Education will have recognition on their transcripts for the completion of this coursework. The Minor in Education in and of itself does not qualify one for certification. Completion of the minor does not guarantee admission to the major.
