The purpose of the educational foundations major is to prepare future professionals in education and related fields: critical thinkers, well-informed about theory and practice, which possess the knowledge and skills to be agents of change in economically, racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse communities. The program focuses on content preparation and provides students with a sophisticated understanding of the intersections of multiple disciplines within larger historical and contemporary themes. Students planning to major in educational foundations enter the university as education pre majors. Transfer students and university students from other majors may become pre majors by submitting a Request for Addition or Deletion Major Form, available online. Pre majors are not eligible to take most 300- and 400-level education courses. Pre major status does not guarantee admission to the educational foundations major. The major is designed as a two-year program completed during the undergraduate junior and senior year. The major requires core courses in five areas: learning, teaching, and assessment; curriculum theory; technology and education; literacy; and equality of opportunity. Additional courses are required in mathematics, science, and a variety of other subjects, including reading, art, music, and physical education.
