Pathways to Teaching

College of Education
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

The Pathways to Teaching minor is available to Liberal Arts and Sciences students with majors in mathematics, science (chemistry, physics or geology) and foreign language (French, German, Latin, or Spanish). The minor allows students to progress toward Florida teaching certification in these critical shortage areas in secondary education, but it does not include a recommendation for teacher certification from the University of Florida.

The minor requires completion of course work in the professional preparation areas of psychological and social foundations, secondary curriculum and instruction, and special methods. Students in Pathways to Teaching will have the opportunity to integrate their teacher education course work with actual classroom experience.

Admission to this minor requires a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Students should make written application for admission to the minor in Norman Hall, Room G416, after 60 and before 100 hours earned.

For additional information, students may consult the Education website or speak with an adviser in the Academic Advising Center or the College of Education (Student Services, Norman Hall, Room G416).
