Education & Society

The Education and Society minor provides you with an interdisciplinary perspective on both the role of education in society and how societal factors influence learners and learning. It allows students who are interested in understanding the philosophical, political, psychological, and sociological factors that impact learners and learning in the American system of public education to study how humans learn and how society, culture, and politics influence learning. The Education and Society minor encourages students to view education through a lens of equity and justice and to seek solutions to problems of inequity. The Education and Society minor does not prepare teachers or other school personnel or lead to a program in teacher certification.
