Minor in Elementary Education

Students who expect to pursue careers in which they will work with pre-school or elementary

school-age children may minor in Elementary Education. This option can strengthen eligibility

for admission to graduate school in such areas as elementary school teaching, school guidance

or psychology, speech pathology, etc. Since certification students in ESS or modern languages

become certified K-12, they often elect to complete this minor, particularly if they would prefer to

teach younger grades. Course requirements include EDUC-202, EDUC/PSYC-265, EDUC-344,

PSYC-345, and one from EDUC-320, 402, 434, or 446. (PSYC-330 is recommended.)
