Education minor

Education minor
This minor is open to students in any major. It is geared toward students who are interested in the teaching profession but who may or may not be working toward a Virginia teaching licensure. Completion of the minor would prepare students to work in a preschool setting, Catholic schools, other independent schools, or in industry training. This minor can be the basis for a licensure program, but completion of the minor is not a licensure program.
