Dartmouth offers a minor in Education. Students may take Education courses singly, to fill distributive requirements or as electives, or in a set that will satisfy the requirements for the minor. Any cross-listed course used for the Education minor requires sign-up in the Education enrollment. Students who wish to have Education as the secondary part of a Modified Major may do so if the major forms a unified and coherent whole as approved by the primary department, and the Registrar.

Minor in Education

The Education minor focuses on investigating the complex world of education through a research-based, interdisciplinary lens. EDUC 1 serves as the introductory course but does not have to be taken first (i.e., is not a prerequisite for other EDUC courses). Courses numbered in the 10s through 40s are mid-level courses characterized by exploration of broader topics, whereas courses numbered in the 50s and 60s are higher-level courses that examine more specific topics in more depth.

The minor is composed of six courses: EDUC 1 is required, along with five other EDUC courses. It is strongly recommended that minors take both mid-level and higher-level courses.

Starting with the class of 2026:
Of the five other EDUC courses, at least four must be core Education courses: 13, 17, 19, 20, 27, 46, 47, 50, 52, and 64.

Senior Education minors are eligible to apply for the Cameron-Glickenhaus Family Fund Prize for the Most Promising Minor in Education.
