Education Minor

Education MinorA minor in Education requires ED F 3010, 3020, 3340 or 3350, ED SP 3700, and three hours from any A L, CTE, ED C, NURS, PRTM, PHIL, PO SC, PSYCH, or SOC course at the 2000 level or higher. This minor does not meet the requirements for teacher certification and is not intended for persons who plan to teach in grades K–12.

A minor consists of at least 15 semester hours, with no fewer than nine credits at the 3000 level or higher. A student cannot major and minor in the same field or acquire a minor that is not allowed by the degree program. In programs that require a minor, courses may not be used to fulfill both the major and minor requirements. Courses that count towards a student’s major, but are outside the major’s course rubric, may also be used to fulfill minor requirements. Students are encouraged to contact the department offering the minor for advising. A student may specify one completed minor on the graduation application to be recorded in his/her academic record.

Note: Some courses in the minors have prerequisite courses. Students should select a minor and take any prerequisites as early as possible in their academic careers.
