The UC Davis School of Education is committed to developing informed citizens and advocates for equitable educational environments in a democratic society. Education courses are designed for undergraduate student from all majors.
A Minor in Education helps students:
- Develop an understanding of the issues and concerns of public and private education, especially with regard to the education of students with diverse learning needs.
- Complete prerequisites for the teaching credential program.
- Work towards a master's degree or doctoral degree in education or related field.
- Seek employment in policy, advocacy, or other education-related careers.
Students must complete 20 units in the Minor program in Education. At least 12 units of the 20-unit minimum for the minor must be in Education. The remaining units for the minor may be in education or a related field as approved on the electives list. See About the Education Minor.
A designated faculty member in the School of Education may advise students and give final approval on the minor. For additional information, contact Student Services.
