Education Minor, Educational Studies Track Worksheet 2015-2016

Welcome to the Educational Studies track of the Education Minor. In modern society education is often thought of as a process that deals with the development of the whole child. It must consider the cognitive, emotional, and social well being of the learner both in school and other social contexts.

This track allows you to take the widest variety of courses that consider the needs of the learner from multiple perspectives. You can explore topics related to psychology, special education, afterschool programs, child development, teacher education, health education, and educational leadership.

The practice courses will give you hands-on experience in classrooms, afterschool programs, and research projects. Through classroom and fieldwork experiences, you can start to consider a variety of careers in teaching, psychology, and educational research.

This track of the minor is also well suited to students who have other career objectives but want to understand the institution of education and its role in society.
