The Education and Society minor seeks to examine education and its role in society: the purposes, forms and history of education and schooling, the provision of equitable opportunities for all, and the development of engaged citizenship for more just societies through education.
Students enrolled in this minor will gain multiple perspectives on education locally, nationally, and internationally, including technology’s role in educational outcomes. The minor provides resources for students who may want to pursue careers in education after graduation—teaching, educational advocacy through non-profits or non-governmental organizations, university research, policymaking, or educational entrepreneurship.
