About the Major

An undergraduate major in Education is a co-major only. Students must take a minimum of 10 courses (minimum of 30 credits), including one course in each of the three core requirements and a capstone course. Up to three of the 10 courses (a maximum of nine credits) may come from other departments. Three courses may count for the student's primary major as well, if that major also approves.

The remainder of a student's courses will be selected by the student in conjunction with the faculty advisor. We are invested in each of our students and ask both the student and the advisor to submit their plan for the major to the Undergraduate Committee.

Some students have recently completed co-majors in Education with majors in Community Health, English, and American Studies. Learn about the experiences of some of our current students and alumni.

About the Minor

A minor in Education requires five courses. Two of these must come from the three competency areas: Cognitive and Social Development, Schools as Institutions, or Teaching and Learning. Four of the five courses must be from the Education department. The three elective courses will be selected by the student in conjunction with the faculty advisors. Please see the minor requirements for additional details.
