The Minor in Educational Studies, administered by the College of Education, is intended for students who are interested in the intersection of learning, education and society. It can be a valuable program addition for students pursuing careers in the social and behavioral sciences, law, social justice or youth services. This minor does not offer professional training for teaching or lead to a teaching certificate or license.
The minor is available as an elective to students enrolled in any bachelor’s degree program at Michigan State University, except the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education. With the approval of the department and college that administer the student’s degree program, the courses used to satisfy the minor may also be used to satisfy those for the bachelor’s degree. At least 12 unique credits counted toward the 18-credit minor must not be used to fulfill requirements for the degree.
For information about the minor, including how to enroll, students should contact Michael Haslett at firstname.lastname@example.org or (517) 353-9680.
Students can also visit the College of Education advising office.
