Education Minors

Education & Society Minor

Undergraduates in any major will benefit from a broader understanding of how society influences our education system and how schools and learning affect every part of society.

Teaching & Learning Minor

This series of courses will provide a strong foundation for future educators in any setting. Students in any major may go on to teach in schools, community centers, museums, zoos, or science centers. The Teaching and Learning minor goes beyond the purpose of education to focus on classroom interactions, teachers as change agents, and opportunities to interact with youth in a classroom setting.

At this time, students completing both the Teaching and Learning Minor and either the Biology Major or Math Major may be eligible to apply to an accelerated certification program resulting in Washington State Residency Certification in the areas of Middle School/High School Science and Biology or Mathematics.

Diversity Studies Minor

The Minor in Diversity Studies is an option for students who want to explore key concepts related to power, identity, and difference, and to understand how historical and structural relations of power and difference shape social relations.
