Information for students who declared an education minor before January 3, 2006
The UW Tacoma Teacher Certification Program has changed its requirements, effective January 3, 2006. TEDUC 471 and TEDUC 482, two of the three education core courses required for the IAS Education minor, no longer fulfill requirements in the UW Tacoma Teacher Certification with Master of Education program. The minor requirements stay the same.
Students must have declared the IAS Education minor before January 3, 2006 in order to have counted these two courses toward fulfilling requirements in the Teacher Certification Program. Summer quarter 2006 will be the last Teacher Certification program admission period for which TEDUC 471 and TEDUC 482 will fulfill program requirements.
How to declare
You can declare a minor by using the same request to declare/change major form and submitting it to Enrollment Services. You must have earned a minimum of 45 credits and declared a major before declaring a minor. If you have any questions about this process, please see your adviser.
