How do I declare my Minor in Education?

There are 3 requirements to declare the Education Minor:

  • Attend an Education Minor Workshop

Multiple workshops are made available each quarter during the academic year, please attend one as soon as you think you might be interested in the field of Education.

Planning ahead is key! In the workshop you are provided with important information about requirements, and other need to know information to help you prepare for your educational goals.

You are required to attend one workshop in order to declare the minor (this is one of three requirements), please remember that you are welcome to attend another workshop at a later time to get a refresher on the information.

RSVP for an Education Minor Workshop

The campus-wide deadline to submit a DECLARATION/CHANGE OF MAJOR/MINOR for each quarter can be found on the Academic and Adminstrative Calendar for the current academic year.
