Students who are interested in education but either do not wish to or do not have time to complete the certification program may minor in education.
Students completing the minor alone will have a strong foundation in education but will NOT be eligible for certification. They may, however, use this course work as a basis for future study. Students who have completed the Education minor have gone on to become guidance counselors, direct non-profit youth-oriented organizations, work in the juvenile justice system etc.
