Secondary Education Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Education

Education minors are offered in Elementary Education  and Secondary Education. Students may declare a minor in Education so that their Education coursework is acknowledged on their official transcript. Students pursuing a minor must complete 18 semester hours in Education coursework.

In order to maximize enrollment in Education courses within the undergraduate program, students are strongly encouraged to declare the Education minor early in their career. The education minor is not applicable to Liberal Studies majors (Multiple Subject Credential).

Completion of an Education minor does not equal completion of the requirements for a teaching credential. Students may complete the Education minor without completing all of the requirements for a teaching credential.
