Undergraduate Minor Application

    Undergraduate Minor Application


    Thank you for starting an application to the USC Rossier School of Education undergraduate minor programs.  The undergraduate minors allow students to gain a foundational understanding of different aspects of the field of education. 

    Some students pursue careers in education-related fields and other students find the skills they develop in the courses are highly transferable, even to non-education-related majors and career goals.  USC Rossier offers three distinct minors: Dynamics of Early Childhood, Education and Society, Multilingualism and Multiculturalism.

    Please complete all parts of the application below and a Rossier staff member will contact you once submitted.
