The Education minor is intended to provide for university students outside the College of Community Innovation and Education a limited but substantial experience in the fields of professional education. Students who successfully complete this minor can expect to increase their marketability in careers that include educational components such as instructing, training, and lecturing. This minor is designed to promote student success in instructional settings, particularly in the high school setting, but does not directly qualify students for teacher certification or admission into the College of Community Innovation and Education. This minor is not available to students in pending status in a College of Community Innovation and Education major. This minor is available for students in the 2007 catalog year and beyond.
