Education Studies Minor

Education Studies Minor

Students in the education studies minor study education as a multidimensional and interdisciplinary area of study. Across courses in the minor program, students have an opportunity to understand the social, political, historical and cultural contexts that have shaped schooling practices and educational experiences. Students explore the competing tensions and inherent challenges within educational environments and develop a clear analysis of the role of equity, diversity and access.
