Explore a career in teaching by pairing a minor in education with the major of your choice for a strong foundation in elementary and secondary education. Combine courses in child development and psychology with an education curriculum focused on teaching methods, practices and the role of technology. Experienced faculty guide you in making connections to content in your major, supervise your student teaching assignments, and help you prepare for state teacher examinations, licensure and graduate programs, or a career in education.
Apply your knowledge and skills at Windy Hill School, the college’s early childhood laboratory school, where you’ll learn firsthand about young children and the environments that support them. Course assignments requiring you to observe, research, or plan and implement activities can be done right on campus at Windy Hill School. Work-study assignments are also available to further broaden your experience working with young children.
