In addition to major programs, the College of Education offers academic minors that help students explore academic areas outside their major and learn skills that can prepare them for career readiness and graduate education. Students interested in pursuing a minor in the College of Education should complete a “Declaration of Minor” form and submit the form to Student Academic Services in EDU 106.
