The minor in Education provides you with an opportunity to explore the field of education in preparation for becoming a future teacher.
We created our new minor in education to offer another pathway to the classroom.
With the 4 + 1 program, you’ll be able to complete the requirements of a licensure-seeking master’s degree in teaching in one year rather than two. In other words, you’ll save on tuition, start teaching sooner and enjoy the significant benefits of having an advanced degree.
Here’s how the program works:
- Major in the course of study of your choice and minor in education
- Once you graduate with your bachelor’s (4 years), enroll in the MAT
- Because of your minor coursework, you can complete the MAT in as little as one year.
Our master’s in teaching degree offers state-approved licensure programs in elementary education, secondary education (with an emphasis in Math, Science, English or Social Studies) or Special Education.
Our faculty members are leaders in their fields. They believe in the power of personal experience—stressing mentorship, collaboration and project-based learning inside and outside the classroom.
