Students who intend to graduate on the 128 credit degree program should consult with Advising & Career Services and their faculty advisor before selecting a teaching minor.  Some requirements for certain teaching minors can be met in General Education, but some others cannot.  Students choosing to take teaching minors with requirements beyond 21 credits may take credits in excess of 128 to complete their teaching major and preferred teaching minor.

For students who are gaining teaching licensure in a content major, the following minor leads to endorsement.  All students desiring licensure to teach are required to file an Application for Admission to the Educator Preparation Program.
