Students interested in pursuing a minor in Education must complete and submit an application describing the rationale for their minor along with the list of courses the student wishes to take (applications are available via the Education Department and the Advising Office). After approval from the Department, students will be notified and their status will be updated with the Registrar's Office. 

Education majors who wish to specialize in an area of interest can do so by completing the requirements of their perspective majors and any additional coursework within a concentration.  Students in majors other than Education complete the courses within the concentration and then will apply for an Education minor in the specialized area.

Education minors choose from a set of approved courses (15 credits) which allows exploration in select coursework in Education.
