The Education Department offers a minor. Students may take Education courses singly, to fill distributive requirements, or in a sequence that will satisfy the requirements for the minor. The department does not approve modifications of other majors with Education.
The Education minor is designed to help students to build and use an integrated, multilevel understanding of learning and development based on critical analysis of theory, policy, and empirical data from education, neuroscience, and psychology. The courses explore how children grow, acquire language, think, reason, learn a variety of skills and knowledge, and how they conceptualize their social, emotional, and moral worlds. The minor is composed of six courses: the introductory course EDUC 1 and five courses excluding EDUC 41. A list of courses, the terms and times they will be offered and sample syllabi (if available), is on the department website. Students who are serious about a career in Education are advised to take EDUC 88 as one of the five courses.
All courses in the Department are graded with the exception of EDUC 42 - EDUC 44, which are Credit/No Credit.
