Major Requirements

An undergraduate major in Education is a co-major only. To complete the major, students must take a minimum of 10 courses (minimum of thirty credits), including three core requirements and a capstone course. Up to three of the ten courses (a maximum of nine credits) may come from other departments. Three courses may count for the primary major as well, if that major also approves.

Students work with a faculty advisor to design a program tailored to their interests and needs. The student and advisor propose a plan consisting of the major advising worksheet and a one page description of the program of study they hope to pursue to the department's Undergraduate Committee. Students who declare a major in Education must submit their plan to the Undergraduate Committee by the following semester's add/drop deadline.

Core Requirements

The core requirements are designed to focus on scholarship, research, and practice in the field of education. To gain a broad understanding in the field of education, students will take at least one course in each of these fields. The following courses are pre-approved as meeting the core requirements; further courses may also be considered by the Undergraduate Committee.

Minor Requirements

Five courses are required for the Minor in Education. Two of the five courses must come from the three fields designated as Core Requirements as listed under the major requirements above.
