Exploring the Field of Education
There are two required core courses as part of the MIE:
STE 403e: Seminar in Educational Inquiry – Exploratory Education (3 cr.)
This course provides the student an opportunity to explore the field of education, including P-20 education, schools, students, teaching, and learning. The course is divided into three overarching themes:
- Teaching & Learning
The course content exposes students to education as a broad discipline, develops and engages students in effective educator practices and pedagogy, and encourages students to identify themselves as an agent of change to be applied in their own context and discipline. Offered in fall and spring semesters.
STE/EDEF 360: Multicultural Education (3 cr.)
Concepts and methods to develop sensitivity and awareness of cultural influences on behavior as these relate to the schooling process. Offered in fall, spring, and summer semesters.
In addition to core coursework, students select three elective courses with approval by the MIE program advisor. The electives may be chosen from among the rich array offered throughout the college. All courses are 3 credits each. Some coursework may be offered in an online format.
