Education Minor

This minor in Education is approved by the Florida Department of Education to provide professional preparation according to Rule 6A-5.066, F.A.C., for those who seek an approved alternative route to Florida Certification.  The minor builds understanding of learners and learning for those earning a baccalaureate degree in a discipline other than education. The program complements discipline expertise by building knowledge and skills of effective teaching. The minor provides rigorous instruction in creating a safe learning environment in P-12 classrooms, effective instructional planning and teaching strategies for diverse learners, and using assessment data to inform instruction with field experiences incorporated into coursework. The course work will build understanding of learning and learners in the prekindergarten- grade 12 environment. Thus, participants in this minor will develop understanding and skill in how to teach their discipline. The minor does need to be declared. A student wishing to receive a minor in Education should complete the course requirements described under “Required Courses.”  Successful completion of the Minor in Education results in the following endorsement on the student’s transcript: “Completed State-Approved Professional Training Option.”
