Teaching and Learning Minor

A student pursuing a minor in teaching and learning should contact the chair of the Department of Education & Wellness

The Teaching and Learning minor is designed, in part, for students who are interested in studying education as an academic field — the processes and structures of traditional school settings as well as other educational arenas — but who are not necessarily interested in teaching as a career. This minor prepares students to make informed decisions about education issues as to work with diverse populations.
