Earn a Minor in Educational Studies!

Watson College of Education offers an interdisciplinary minor in Educational Studies for any student interested in theoretical, empirical and applied issues related to the exploration of the socio-cultural context of education, regardless of major program of study.

Why Minor in Educational Studies?

The minor draws on a wide range of disciplines such as history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, political science, gender and cultural studies, and comparative and international studies. Students will develop a knowledge base that encourages their development into informed and socially engaged stakeholders who have essential skills to critically engage in research, education, and diverse communities. Students will complete 21 hours for the minor - 12 hours in Education and 9 hours of elective credit.

Benefits
  • Several courses in the minor partially or completely satisfy university studies requirements.
  • Students who complete the minor are exempt from the transdisciplinary cluster requirement.
