Education and Society Minor

The education and society minor seeks to examine education and its role in society. The minor is intended to help students develop broad perspectives on the purposes and forms of education and schooling, including the purpose and history of schooling; the provision of equitable opportunities for all; the factors impacting teaching, learning and achievement; and the development of engaged citizenship for more just societies through education. Students enrolled in this minor will gain multiple perspectives on education locally, nationally and internationally, including technology’s role in educational outcomes. The minor provides resources for students who may want to pursue careers in education after graduation — teaching, educational advocacy through nonprofits or non-governmental organizations, university research, policymaking or educational entrepreneurship.
