Our Exploratory Education major is a great starter option for students who think they would like to teach or work with youth in a community setting, but aren’t sure which path to take. As a student in this major, you’ll take introductory classes in education, experience the wide variety of educational work and settings available, and participate in assessments to discover your strengths, values, and interests—all with the purpose of unlocking your passion to confidently declare a major that is right for you.
Do you have a passion for understanding the critical role that education plays in a democratic society? Our 19-credit hour Education minor is available to all Butler University students not pursuing a College of Education major. This program provides a general foundation of educational knowledge. Coursework topics include developmental theory and application, multilingual learners, foundations of special education, and more.
