Education Studies Minor Overview
Many students at KU express interest in and request education course options without committing to becoming a licensed teacher. They see value in better understanding the intersection of education with society and their chosen major, and the minor in education studies at the University of Kansas meets this demand. It provides a solid grasp of essential theory and research in education, along with an opportunity to focus on particular aspects of the process of the educational system. The minor also provides undergraduate students of any major the opportunity to develop an understanding of the legal, social, political, and economic forces that influence and shape educational policies by choosing from lower and upper division elective courses.
