Minor in Educational Studies

This minor is designed for students from majors that do not have a teacher education program and will provide students with information about K-12 students and how they learn. Students who complete this minor are not guaranteed a teaching license in Oklahoma, but the State Department of Education may accept some or all of the courses as one step in the path to alternative certification.

If a student is interested in coursework that will support alternative certification but is too far in their major to complete the minor, they should consider graduate work in Cameron’s M.Ed. in Education with a concentration in Teaching & Learning.
