Minor in Education

Drexel University School of Education

At Drexel, we know that good teachers come from a variety of educational backgrounds. The minor in education degree program allows non-education majors to work toward teacher certification or prepare for careers in private-sector education (such as corporate training or human resource development). Though the minor in education option does not lead to teacher certification by itself, it provides a solid foundation in educational theory.

Drexel students who are interested should contact their undergraduate academic advisors or the School of Education at 215.895.6770.

Education Minor Degree Program Requirements

The Minor in Education is 24 credits and includes a field observation component. Students must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program. Students must also pass the required writing intensive course. For course descriptions and requirements, please see the Drexel University Online Course Catalog.

What Can You Do With A Minor In Education?

Students who earn a Minor in Education will not automatically earn a teaching certificate, however the classes offer in the education minor program are requirements to earn a certificate should the student choose to pursue a teaching certificate. The teaching certificate will then allow the students to teach elementary or secondary school students in the subject area chosen.
