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. Students interested in teacher licensure are urged to contact the College's Student and Academic Affairs Office for guidance in identifying the requirements for teaching credentials.
Eight credits of coursework must be unique to the minor. For policies governing all minors, see AP.5.3.4 Minors.
