Disability Studies - Open to all majors
The Disability Studies Minor provides an overview of the interdisciplinary study of disability across the domains of human experience. The minor allows students to explore the variety of approaches to understanding disability in personal, social, economic, artistic and political contexts. The minor focuses on issues in the representation, history and interpretation of disability as a social category of human difference rather than issues related to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of impairments.
Integrated Educational Studies (IES) - Open to majors outside of IES
The minor in Integrated Educational Studies (IES) is designed for students who want to gain general expertise in the theoretical, structural, psychological and sociocultural aspects of education both in formal settings, such as schools, and informal settings at all stages of development (child-adolescent, adult). Students who intend to teach at the secondary level are encouraged to pursue the Secondary Education minor which is specifically tailored to their preparation.
Language and Literacy - Open to all majors
The Language and Literacy minor prepares the candidate with specific content preparation necessary for a career that includes the teaching of English at the elementary or middle grades levels or intensive writing in English in a community education setting. Future high school English teachers who are IES majors in the Schools Emphasis area are strongly encouraged to choose English as a second major or to choose English as their core content minor and Language and Literacy as their second, required minor.
Secondary Education - Open to majors outside of IES
The Secondary Education minor is designed for majors in content subject areas, such as mathematics, science, English or other language, and history/social science, which are typically taught in secondary (grades 6-12) schools. The Secondary Education minor must be enrolled in a major OUTSIDE of Integrated Educational Studies (IES).
Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) - Open to all majors, except those in Schmid College
The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Education minor prepares the candidate with a breadth of STEM courses in order to prepare for future careers in education and related STEM fields. Admission to the minor requires approval from the Integrated Education Studies STEM Education advisor.
