Minor in Education

The Secondary Education Minor is open to all majors for those the School of Education is approved to license (i.e. English, History, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, and Biology). This gives undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in a career as a teacher in Indiana/Kentucky, based on state licensing requirements.

The program allows students to complete a teaching credential program while majoring in a related program (i.e. fine arts-theatre, Spanish, economics, geography, natural sciences) or any academic area in which the state offers a content area exam that the School of Education has approval to license. The Secondary Education Minor for teacher licensure has the same program acceptance requirements for students minoring in Education, as well as, students majoring in Education.
