Pathways to Progressive Degree

Current Education Minors

The USC Rossier education minor programs offer an introduction to the MAT or MAT-TESOL progressive degree programs. As a student with a USC Rossier minor, you can gain an early start toward a master’s degree as well as the advantage of meeting faculty and experiencing class rigor.

Non-education Minors

  • Students applying to a progressive degree program without prior coursework in a USC Rossier minor in Education and Society or TESOL are still able to complete the progressive degree, but will need to complete all required coursework for the respective master’s degree. Students must be able to start master’s program coursework prior to completing undergraduate degree for the program to be considered progressive.
