# Academic Programs

Courses in the **Mathematics Education Minor** are intended for students interested in understanding how people learn mathematics, including students interested in teaching and a plethora of other careers that involve communicating mathematical ideas to others, as well as students who are curious about how they can become better learners.

Courses in the **Science Education Minor** are intended for students interested in understanding how people learn science, including students interested in teaching and a plethora of other careers that involve communicating scientific ideas to others, as well as students who are curious about how they can become better learners.

**Three majors** are available to students interested in teaching—Mathematics Secondary Education Major, Chemical Education Major and General Physics/Secondary Education Major. Students in these majors are encouraged to take courses in the Math and Science Education Minors, but of course are not eligible for a minor in the same discipline.
