Education for Science Students


The Education for Science Students Minor is a great opportunity to follow your passions and interests in the sciences while developing your skills as an educator.

This Minor will give you a solid footing in the basics of pedagogy and can act as a starting point towards a B.Ed. degree. You will take courses on the philosophy of education, policy issues related to education, equity and education, and more

This minor doesn’t qualify you to enter the teaching profession, but it serves as an excellent introduction to issues in education while you pursue your interests within the sciences.

You can apply your knowledge to community work, advising, and more. Some students enjoy the program so much, they continue on to a B.Ed!
