Education and Social Justice (Minor)

Menu

The minor is for undergraduates with majors in other fields of study who want to study educational issues but are not pursuing teacher licensure. From a critical and interdisciplinary lens, students enrolled in the minor will study educational thought, policy and practice in relationship to broader social, cultural and political forces, in both school and non-school settings. The minor will help students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and critically analyze the purposes of education and its impact on individuals and the broader society.
