As a future teacher, you’re always looking for ways to expand your teaching toolkit. With the minors in education from Indiana University Kokomo, you’ll take courses that help you specialize your degree even further, making you more knowledgeable and more marketable to future employers. Students enrolled in the education course of study for K-6 are required to complete a minor to satisfy teacher licensure regulations. We currently offer two minors in education. 

Minor in Early Childhood Education

By completing this minor, you will have a better understanding of working to educate younger children. With courses ranging from Introduction to Early Childhood Education all the way to The Early Childhood Educator, you’ll cover all the foundations you need. Upon completion of this minor, you may be eligible for dual licensure in elementary education and early childhood education. Be sure to chat with an advisor to help you decide if this is the right minor for you. Please also note, this minor will articulate with the A.S. in Early Childhood from Ivy Tech Community College. 

Minor in Special Education

By completing this minor, you will have a better understanding of how to help children with special needs. With courses ranging from Introduction to Language and Learning Disorders all the way to Education of the Socially and Emotionally Disturbed, you’ll gain the solid understanding you need to help your students succeed. Upon completion of this minor, you may be eligible for dual licensure in elementary education and special education. Be sure to chat with an advisor to help you decide if this is the right minor for you.

Outside of the minors offered by the School of Education, students can minor in content areas that will be of value as you seek employment. Visit a list of all our minors to see what might benefit your pedagogy.
