Printer-friendly version

The MIE application deadline for Fall 2019 has been extended through May 1, 2019.

The Minor in Education (MIE) provides undergraduate students with a unique learning opportunity to examine and participate in the field of education without having to be enrolled in a teacher licensure program. This minor is tailored to classified students who are interested in education as a second specialization, which will complement their major studies, as well as in the exploration of education as a viable career option.

About

The MIE is a 15-credit program that may complement any bachelor’s degree and be completed alongside major coursework. The MIE is for students seeking to enrich their undergraduate program, particularly those who are considering education as a future profession. As an added benefit, completers of the program may opt to become certified as a substitute teacher with the Hawai’i Department of Education (HIDOE).

Requirements*

  • Complete two core courses (6 credits)
  • Maintain a minimum grade of  “C” or better in each individual MIE course and a minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA for all MIE courses
  • Select three additional courses (9 credits) from an approved list to satisfy the remaining credit requirements
  •  Work with a College of Education advisor to select courses for the best integration with major coursework

*Courses taken for the MIE cannot be double counted for credits towards General Education and Major requirements.
