The Education Department offers both a minor in Education and a teacher certification program; undergraduates may choose either or both options. Students may take Education courses singly, to fill distributive requirements, or in a sequence that will satisfy the requirements for the minor and/or certification.

The Human Development and Education minor is focused on human development and learning considered from multiple perspectives; it is designed to help students to build and use an integrated, multilevel understanding of learning and development based on critical analysis of theory, policy, and empirical data from education, neuroscience, and psychology. The minor is composed of six courses: the introductory course Education 1, the senior seminar Education 88, and four courses from: Education 16, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62 and 64. A summary of specific requirements is available in the Education Department office and on the department website. Students interested in establishing a minor in Education should talk with a member of the department in order to design a course of study that meets the minor requirements.

Through the certification program (Teacher Education Program), undergraduates have the opportunity to become certified as a teacher at the elementary or secondary level. Students interested in teaching certification should read the requirements for certification in particular teaching fields, as described in the handout available in the Education Department office and on the department website, and talk with a member of the department as early as possible in order to design a course of study that meets certification requirements. The Teacher Education Program at Dartmouth meets the beginning certification requirements for most states.
