The Sociocultural Studies in Education (SCSE) Minor provides a multidisciplinary foundation for the study of social and cultural phenomena that shape educational ideologies and practices. This minor enables students to take courses from a variety of social science, humanities, and interdisciplinary fields in order to generate a particular perspective, lens, or optic that can illuminate problems or processes of interest to them.
Admission to the SCSE Minor is contingent upon prior admission to a master’s or doctoral degree-granting program within the Graduate School. Interested students should consult with a SCSE faculty member to develop a proposed course of study, then formally declare the minor when they file their program form. Students who declare the minor are required to enlist a member of the SCSE faculty on their master’s or doctoral committee.
