Teacher Education (Minor)

Department Website

Program Description

The minor in Teacher Education introduces students to the study of education and human development and to the profession of education and provides an opportunity for undergraduates to explore becoming a teacher in early childhood, elementary, middle, or high schools. This minor is open to all NYU students, except Teacher Education majors. The minor prepares students for further study toward a career as a classroom teacher or in related fields such as psychology, advocacy, or social work.
