Urban Education Minor (M)
Through this minor, we focus on addressing the needs of the whole student. This means engagement in core subjects, child health and safety and guidance in the exploration of their beliefs and values. We have the program INVEST that strives to increase the diversity and skill of teachers in urban settings within Milwaukee. We also have a partnership with the Center for Urban Education Ministries with a focus on immersion, community outreach, and instructional team collaboration. We combine traditional teaching methods with field experiences so you can understand what student success really means. You will have access to experienced educators to develop the commitment to change and earn effective approaches for school improvement and parent outreach.
The Urban Education Minor includes 18 credits and is available for multiple education majors including the Early Childhood Education Major, the Elementary/Middle-School Education Major, and the Secondary/K-12 Education Major. So, no matter your focus and grade-level emphasis, we offer the ability to highlight the importance of community and urban education settings.
