The education minor from Saint Louis University can complement any degree program and provides a basic foundation in education.
General knowledge in education is beneficial in stimulating an interest in key educational issues including equity in education, educational ethics, poverty and school safety. Courses addressing curriculum, instruction, assessment, leadership and ethics provide learners an introduction to the education process.
Most employment positions require employees to share their knowledge with others within and outside of the agency. Government, business, and nonprofit employees make educational decisions on a regular basis. Individuals can make well-informed, intelligent judgments regarding education if they have strong content knowledge backgrounds in the field of education.
As part of the minor program, learn from faculty in the School of Education who have K-12 teaching experience and care deeply about students.
