About the Minor
This minor can be coupled with a variety of majors and fulfils the coursework that leads to a PA Instructional I teaching certification in grades 4-8. It will provide the opportunity to learn about teaching middle level grades and to develop core knowledge and practices in education. Candidates will select to focus on certification in two middle level content areas. This minor includes coursework that meets the requirements to be recommended for teacher certification in PA.
The program requires that candidates have a B average (3.0 GPA) in content courses needed for teacher certification in addition to the grade of B or better in each EDEX, EDUC, ESTM, and MTED courses throughout their time in the program. These requirements must be satisfied for Drexel to recommend the candidates for teacher certification upon graduation and/or be considered to have completed the program.
