A minor in education consists of a minimum of 15 credits in education courses. Students interested in pursuing a minor in education must submit a proposal describing the rationale for their minor along with the list of courses the student wishes to take.
Education minors must be approved by the Undergraduate Education department before the student undertakes coursework.

Alyxis Crompton '18 found her calling based on her experiences at a recent summer job. "I worked at a water park geared toward children with special needs; a lot of the kids had autism or used wheelchairs. After they'd go down the slide, they'd run to me and give me a hug. It really made me begin to see that I had a connection with them. Right then I realized I wanted to spend my life working with kids who have special needs."
