Education, B.A. (Non-Teaching)

Return to Majors and Minors Return to: Majors and Minors

Students who seek non-teaching careers related to the education of children and youth (e.g. child life, camps, religious education) may choose to major in Education without completing the licensure program. As part of the application for admission to the Education major for non-teaching fields, students write a letter to the department chair indicating why the non-teaching major is necessary to achieve their career or educational goals involving work with children and youth. The letter should include a description of the procedure followed to investigate the proposed focus of study and a tentative list of courses to be included in the program.

Students must successfully complete all courses required in the major field of study with a grade of “C” or greater.

Typically, the major includes 13 courses:

one or two courses exposing the student to learning outside of the traditional classroom:

one biological science course with a separate laboratory component:

and, at least four other courses numbered 200 or greater in a focused cognate area outside of EDU determined in consultation with the academic advisor.
