Educational Studies Minor (EDUC)

Contact: Associate Professor Deborah Appleman

The Educational Studies minor provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of education as an individual pursuit, an institutional venture, and a societal imperative. The minor aims to develop thoughtful, skillful and imaginative students of the psychology, social and cultural history, and politics of education. Students will pursue the study of education as a liberal art, one that both reveals the constraints of socialization and informs alternative visions of self and community. The minor is appropriate for students of all majors interested in the stewardship of education as a cornerstone of democracy. You can declare a minor anytime between the second week of 6th term and the second week of 10th term.
