Advisement for the minor is available from the Early and Elementary Education  Department.

  • Required core science courses include two lab science courses from different prefix areas, an approved STEM elective or science course from a third prefix area, and a laboratory safety class.

  • Take 3 additional courses from at least 2 disciplines, which may include science prefixes (i.e., BIOL, CHEM, ELED, ENVR, GEOG/GEOL, PHYS [GEOG courses must be in physical geography or geography methodology, not human geography. For the purposes of the minor, GEOG and GEOL will be considered one discipline.]) and/or appropriate education prefix (e.g., appropriate ISED or ELED prefix topics courses with approval from the minor coordinator).

  • At least 6 credits of the electives must be at the 200 level or above.

  • Courses/prefixes shown are the preferred core courses at SU, but transfer courses can be substituted on the approval of the minor coordinator.

  • Complete all courses with grades of C or better.

  • The minor consists of a minimum of 23 credits, 15 of which must be courses that are beyond those required for General Education.
