Undergraduate Teaching Minors

Students who are earning a baccalaureate degree in the College of Arts and Sciences and who are also seeking teacher licensure in elementary education, English education, foreign language education, mathematics education, music education, science education, or social science education are urged to earn a minor in either elementary or secondary education. Students who do not earn a minor as part of their undergraduate studies will be required to complete the equivalent of a minor as a prerequisite to entering the fifth year of professional study.

Students should note that courses taken to satisfy the minor will not fulfill teacher licensure requirements.
