Minors

Undergraduate students have the option to declare a minor program of study in addition to their major for the majority of the majors in the college. However, a minor is required for the following programs: 

Students must contact their advisor within the department or college of their major to request a minor declaration. Please refer to the “Contact” page for advisor contact information.

Teacher Preparation for Undergraduate Students (Minor in Education)

Students interested in teaching in public schools in Arkansas must be licensed by the state in a state-approved subject area. By earning your licensure in one of the areas listed below, you open up your options for employment.

All programs require the completion of a major in the chosen field and in some cases require additional courses, blocks of courses, or other special minors. When the hours accumulated within a content area, taken together with university core hours, second language hours, and 18 hours in the Education minor do not total 120 (of which at least 45 are upper-level), students must take additional general electives.

Minor Leading to Licensure in Education

Teacher Preparation for Future Graduate Students (M.Ed.)

Students preparing for careers in education with an emphasis in business education (4-12th grade), Health Sciences (K-12), or Physical Education (K-12) should complete one of the related majors offered by the CBHHS before entering the non-traditional, first-time licensure master of education (M.Ed.) in education program with an emphasis in the appropriate content area for licensure. Courses recommended by the Arkansas Department of Education for licensure are offered by the School of Business and the School of Counseling, Human Performance, and Rehabilitation.

Students should consult the School of Education in the College of Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences, and Education regarding licensure requirements.
