The Exceptional Student Education minor is intended to provide a limited, but substantive experience in the fields of education and exceptional children. The minor does not lead to teacher certification or admission to the College of Education and Human Performance. The minor is appropriate for students who are seeking an enhanced understanding of education or are considering a career in the fields of education or exceptional education. This minor will strengthen the marketability of the student’s major program.
