What You'll Study

The Graduate School of Education awards an undergraduate minor in the field of Education. The minor is structured to provide a substantial introduction to education through a broad-based and focused study of educational research, theory and practice. The goals of the minor are to allow undergraduates to develop an understanding of the core issues facing educators and policymakers, to make connections to their major programs of study, and to provide rigorous preparation for graduate studies in Education.

An honors program in Education is available to undergraduates to supplement their regular majors by applying their studies to the field of education, broadly conceived. This program enables qualified undergraduates at Stanford to extend the training in their major field of study by pursuing additional courses and a research thesis in a related area in the study of education.
