Education Studies

About the Program

The Education Studies minor is grounded in social justice and teaches students to recognize and confront bias and inequities that shape institutions, interpersonal interactions, and individuals, in order to acknowledge the full humanity of students, families, educational personnel and other stakeholders. Students experiencing the Education Studies minor use theory and experience to critically consider how educational policy and classroom practices materially impact the learning opportunities available to P-12 students. The Educations Studies minor is appropriate for students who want to explore the possibilities in educational careers or who hope to pursue careers in social work, community activism, or providing training in various settings.
