Education Minors

Minors in Wheelock College of Education & Human Development

Wheelock faculty have designed minors for students who are interested in developing their knowledge of education policies and practices, but not intending to complete educator licensure requirements.*

Minors are offered in Applied Human Development, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Deaf Studies, Education, Emotional and Behavioral Challenges in Schools, English Education, Mathematics Education, Special Education, and Teaching Science Education. Note: Wheelock minors do not meet the requirements for educator licensure, although some coursework may be applied to courses of study leading to licensure. For more information about these minors, or to make an appointment to discuss requirements, contact the Wheelock Student Services office at 617-353-4237 or

*The College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) offers a Bachelor of Arts in Science Education (with specialization in Biology, Chemistry, or Physics) designed to give future K–12 educators a rigorous foundation in a primary area of science (Biology, Chemistry, or Physics), broad foundation in the natural sciences (through breadth studies), and the training necessary to excel as a classroom educator. All students completing the degree will receive educator licensure through the core education courses in Wheelock College of Education & Human Development and a teaching practicum.
