Minor in Education

The minor in Education does not qualify one to teach in Pennsylvania public schools. If a student wishes to continue toward teacher certification after graduation, they will need to complete the coursework and student teaching required to apply for Pennsylvania certification. Students interested in obtaining teacher certification should speak to Education Undergraduate Program Director, Dr. Christa Bialka, to create a plan for moving forward.
