Education Studies

The Minor (BC)/Special Concentration (CC/GS) in Education Studies is ideal for students who are considering:

  • Teaching, but not seeking certification as an undergraduate

  • Graduate studies in education or the social sciences

  • Careers in public policy or law

  • Careers in educational non-profits or other out-of-school spaces 

  • Other areas where K-12 education is a focus

The Special Concentration in Education Studies does not lead to teacher certification but coursework includes field experiences in K-12 urban classrooms. To participate in the Education Studies track, students must submit a declaration of intent during the spring of their sophomore year. Coursework includes Education courses, Educational Foundations courses, and relevant courses in other departments that address educational issues.
