The undergraduate minor in education is appropriate for undergraduate students interested in furthering their knowledge of education as a means of career development or to enhance their understanding of current schooling, community, and policy directions.
The minor requires an application to the School of Education that consists of a statement of interest and purpose, and an academic plan. The application process is intended to ensure the student’s commitment to completing the minor. Applications are opened and submitted every semester. Priority is given to juniors, seniors, and students intending to enter the bachelor’s–master’s M.A.T. program.
Students may apply any year during their undergraduate career.
In addition to the program requirements listed below, students must:
- take at least 9 credits of their minor course requirements at UNC–Chapel Hill
