B.Ed Minor in Education

WHY DO A MINOR?
Many students are seeking to make themselves more marketable by doing Minors in Education. In the past, however, they have selected courses randomly.The department now recommends that for a minor in Education , the student should do a total of 15 credits.This should include:

 

Programme Content

Foundations of Education and Educational                                      Credits  6 ( Two Courses)
Theory (Core Education Courses)                   
Professional Specialization (Methodology)                                      Credits  9 ( Three Courses)

 

 

These courses are designed to provide the student with an introduction to the Foundations of Education and Educational Theory; an orientation to the practice of Education; and introduction to selected methods of teaching a subject. While the Minor in Education may attract the graduate into teaching, it does not qualify the person to be paid as a trained graduate.
