Are you interested in enhancing your resume, to differentiate yourself from others graduating in your field?

Enrolling in our undergraduate education minor program will give you a head start on the coursework needed and offered through the University at Buffalo's graduate-level initial teacher certification program.

If you are an undergraduate student interested in teaching in New York State public schools (pre-K through 12), you should consider our minor to explore teaching as a career. While this minor itself cannot lead directly to initial teacher certification, you can earn up to 12 credit hours toward a master’s degree and teaching certificate.

Please apply for the education minor today, as classes fill quickly.

Education minor coursework can be completed fully online, on campus or a combination of both.
