Minor in Education
Offer a minor in Education within your college to attract undergraduate students across all majors. Consider minimizing the amount of units required for the minor to make it more accessible to students with high-unit majors. Offer courses within the minor where the students are able to complete their early field experience requirement. This allows you to track, engage, and introduce the students to your credential and graduate programs.
