As an education minor, you will address some of the greatest urban educational challenges of our time. You might minor in education if you’re interested in learning about education for its own sake, or if you’re considering a professional role in the field.
While we believe that quality education for all is a right and imperative in our society, this ideal is elusive, particularly in our cities. Our courses in education enable you to investigate efforts to meet this challenge of equity and quality with a focus on urban school reform, neighborhood renewal and under-served communities. Working closely with faculty and school teachers, you will support these important efforts.
