The Education minor is offered through the School of Education for students interested in careers in education outside the TK-12 classroom such as in educational policy, educational nonprofit organizations, educational film productions, and museum education. Students may declare a minor so that their Education coursework is acknowledged on their official transcript.

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 Subjects credential students).

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.

All candidates must complete the Certificate of Clearance and submit a TB test (within the last 12 months) before receiving permission to enroll in EDES 501 Teaching and Learning in Diverse Communities  and EDES 502 Creating and Leading Effective Classroom Environments  or EDES 503 Language Theory and Pedagogy: Second Language Acquisition  and EDES 504 Assessment to Inform Instruction for Diverse Students . These documents are required for participation in clinical practice.
