The Education Studies Minor focuses on the many professional research issues confronting educators. The goal is to provide upper division undergraduates of any major the opportunity to develop their understanding of current educational practices and the complex interactions among the legal, social, political, and economic forces that influence and shape educational policies in America, to consider options for a career in education, and to become better consumers of educational services as parents, taxpayers, and citizens.
