Minor in Teaching

The Department of Education at Trinity University provides three award-winning graduate programs in education as well as a Minor in Teaching. We strive to prepare our students to become part of a leading force in education for San Antonio and beyond.

Minor in Teaching

The Minor in Teaching allows students to select a focus on either elementary education (23 hours) or secondary education (20 hours) with a concentration on working with students with special needs or who are English language learners. Completion of the minor fulfills the prerequisites for admission to the MAT program; however, prerequisites can be fulfilled with select coursework outside of the minor (see MAT prerequisites). The minor is designed for students preparing to become teachers or who are interested in teaching English to speakers of other languages or students with disabilities. It also provides experiential learning opportunities for students who may be thinking of teaching abroad or pursuing service opportunities such as the Peace Corps or City Year. 

Required Sequence for the minor.
