Minor in Teacher Education

Learn the Fundamentals of the Teaching Profession

Not all educators start their careers with a degree in education. Some enter the classroom from another field of study, having discovered a desire to influence the next generation of students with a love of learning. By adding a Minor in Teacher Education to your major, you’ll obtain foundational knowledge in multiple educational areas including early childhood, special populations, multiculturalism, learning theories and instructional technologies.

Give Your Major Focus with a Minor in Teacher Education

Cultivate your interest in the teaching profession while still pursuing your preferred major. This 15-hour program will help you bring the expertise of your major to the classroom. It will provide basic information in working various types of formal and information educational settings like afterschool and tutoring programs – which could be of interest to sociology and social work majors looking for jobs in community centers run by either a nonprofit or local government.
