Curriculum and Instruction

Ph.D. Minor in Teacher Education

The Teacher Education Minor (minimum 12 credit hours) is designed to help students explore four broad areas of scholarship:1) the theories, ideologies, and philosophies of teacher education; 2) the different approaches that have been used to develop teacher education programs and components of programs; 3) the experience (from students' and/or teacher educators' perspectives) of being involved in teacher education; 4) the societal factors (e.g., issues of race, class, gender) that have an impact on teacher education. Each area is examined both historically and in the present.
