Studies in Teaching/Education:

Cornell offers a minor in education  that prepares students for a variety of post-graduate opportunities, including graduate programs in PreK-12 teaching, education policy, and educational research; curriculum and educational technology development; college teaching and positions which support adult, community, and life-long learning (e.g. via professional development, training, outreach, extension, workplace learning); and participation in public discussions about schools and education, particularly in the context of domestic and international development. Teaching in public schools requires certification, which students can pursue at a variety of graduate and teacher-residency programs around the country. (Cornell faculty listed at can advise students on program options.) An especially convenient and strong option is the program at Ithaca College that leads to a master’s degree and New York State certification. A special agreement between Cornell and Ithaca College streamlines the application process.
