Teaching Psychology Track

A teaching minor is an academic minor which may contain different course requirements designed to meet state standards. Those interested in teaching in K-12 schools must complete a teaching major in a content area plus the teacher preparation program through the Department of Teaching and Learning. Additional teaching areas can be added through completion of either a teaching major or a teaching minor in that content area.

The term ‘minor’ for this teaching option refers to courses that need to be completed. To sign up for this option, you need to contact the Teaching and Learning Department. Do not fill out a minor form for graduation or the minor section of the major change form. Approvals for this option must come from the Teaching and Learning Department.

Teaching Licensure Requirements

Note: Individuals completing a teaching minor must also complete a teaching major in another content area. Students must be formally admitted to the Teacher Education Program and complete all of the professional education licensure requirements.
