The education minor is ideal for those who may wish to go into corporate training, human resources, and professionals that are closely related to education, schools, and school systems.
You'll be introduced to important foundations of American education and its role in society, as well as discuss issues related to curriculum, and the profession of teaching. As an education minor, you'll develop critical and multiple perspectives about education in a democratic society, and the importance of meeting the needs of all learners in this setting.
And in support of the education of all students, you'll consider philosophical, historical, theoretical, and legal foundations of special education, and the education of other categories of students who are considered at-risk, such as migrant, homeless, and incarcerated youth, minorities, the LGBTQA+ community, transgender students, first Americans, students with health challenges, and students living in poverty.
You'll also explore societal perspectives on special education, philosophical and psychological aspects of education, along with foundations of language and literacy.
