Minor in Education

Belmont’s Education minor emphasizes education as a point of advocacy and addresses the construction of knowledge, equity in learning environments, and child and adolescent development. Whether your interest is exploring early childhood education, K-12 schools, higher education, or education policy, Belmont’s undergraduate minor will provide the academic grounding and real-world exposure to prepare you for education related careers or additional study at the graduate level.

The Education minor is also the primary vehicle for competencies required in Belmont’s 4+1 Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Internship program. Belmont students who are planning to enter the graduate MAT-Internship program use the undergraduate minor in Education to meet core competencies for their graduate degree program. As part of this path, Belmont undergraduates apply for graduate school during their undergraduate senior year. If accepted for admission, over the next year MAT Interns complete graduate coursework and complete an internship in Nashville-area public schools, where they work alongside a mentor teacher and receive support from a Belmont faculty and a Clinical Teaching Supervisor.
