Admissions Information for Majors

Minors

Undergraduate students have the option to declare a minor program of study in addition to their major.

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) (Required Info if applicable)
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.

Minors Leading to Licensure in Education 

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

Students holding a Bachelor’s degree who want to pursue teacher licensure may take the 18 hours in a content area required for licensure as a post-baccalaureate student in CHASSE.  For more specific information, students should consult the School of Education in CHASSE regarding licensure requirements
