The Educational Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary program designed for undergraduate students with any major who are interested in studying domestic and/or global educational issues. Students will engage in these issues from multiple disciplinary perspectives that will prepare them to work thoughtfully with youth or adults or to pursue policy and research opportunities in a variety of educational settings. Two distinct tracks are offered within the Educational Studies Minor; one focuses on Global Education and the other on Policy and Equity Issues.
The Minor itself does not lead to a teaching credential. Those interested in initial licensure to teach in K-12 schools are encouraged to apply for admission to elementary, secondary, or special education programs in the School of Education
