The Education minor without certification is designed for students who are interested in pursuing careers in an education setting, but do not wish to pursue certification to become a classroom teacher. The Education minor does not lead to teacher certification

There are three minor pathways, depending upon the student's professional goals: education minor without certification paired with any major; education minor without certification paired with a theology major for those students interested in theological education (campus ministry or teaching theology); or an education minor without certification paired with a psychology major for those students interested in student services (speech and language pathology or counseling). These education minors do not lead to teacher certification. Each of the Education minor without certification pathways requires five or more courses.
