This minor is intended to provide an option for acquiring courses for those exploring professional education that could contribute to achieving NC licensure for students enrolled in a program that does not offer a major in teacher education. Specifically, the Teacher Education program’s Professional Education Core courses plus 6 credit hours of electives will be used to fulfill the requirements of a minor. This minor is offered only for programs that do not have a major in teacher education.
This minor will develop the skills, knowledge and dispositions of students seeking a minor in education to complete the course and early field experience requirements that will assist them in becoming future teachers. This minor alone does not result in an endorsement for professional licensure through the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction without the fulfillment of all additional licensure requirements including student teaching.
