Minors Only for Education Majors

A minor field of study option ordinarily consists of six - eight courses.  The minors presented below are available only to education majors. Grades of "C-" or lower are not counted toward fulfillment of minor requirements. The minors have been designed to provide teacher candidates with an Illinois approval/endorsement on their license at the time of degree conferral. Completion of one or more of these minors meets a designated teacher shortage area and enhances your credentials to meet the needs of all students.
