Minor in Education


Students who seek a minor in education are encouraged to speak with the dean of the College of Education or with the chair of the program in which the minor is sought. A minor in education will not yield enough content or pedagogy for certification. A minor might indicate to a prospective employer an applicant’s seriousness about teaching.

Because a minor does not lead to certification by itself, the courses included are generic. The courses included in FVSU’s education minor are required by the State of Georgia for all educators.

Courses

  • EDUC 2110: Investigating Critical and Contemporary Issues in Education
  • EDUC 2120: Exploring Socio-Cultural Perspectives on Diversity in Education
  • EDUC 2130: Exploring teaching and learning
  • EDUC 2110P: Pre-professional Block Practicum – 50 hours of supervised field experience coordinated with the prevoius three courses

  • READ 3820: Expanding Literacy Across Content Areas in Early Childhood/Special Education

In addition to the courses above, the College of Education recommends that the student seeking a minor in education take other courses if possible: at least one classroom management course, one methods course and a course in instructional technology. These courses will increase marketability and progress toward certification and advanced degrees.
