Wesleyan's education studies minor is designed to help students acquire a deeper understanding of education and its relationship to society by studying educational institutions, practices and thinking in the U.S. and abroad, from early childhood to higher education. 

What You’ll Study

  • The education studies minor is awarded to students who complete seven courses from an approved curriculum, including at least one course from each of the following categories: cognitive and psychological influences on learning and schooling; social and structrual analyses of education; statistics; broader contexts; and in-school experience. The two additional courses should be chosen from those listed in the first and second categories.  
  • The minor does not provide the course credentials for CT State Initial Educator Certification required for teaching positions in public schools. Visit Alternate Route to Certification for more information.
