How to Apply

There are 2 steps you need to take in order to apply to the Education minor.

  1. Attend one of the Education Minor Information Sessions.  These sessions, conducted by the Education Minor Advisor, give background information about the minor, review requirements and guidelines, and answer questions. Information sessions are held several times during the Fall and Spring semesters and last between half an hour and an hour.  If you are unable to attend the Information Sessions, you are welcome to meet with the Minor Advisor during office hours.
  2. Submit an online Application Form 

Authenticate yourself

with your CalNet ID to begin the process.

When completing the online application form, you will be asked to provide a list of courses and fieldwork you have already taken and/or plan to take to complete the requirements of the minor. This is only a plan. You will not be required to take or use those courses for the minor. 

Once you have submitted your online application, the Minor Advisor will automatically be notified and will review your application for completeness. Unless there are questions, you will then be considered an Education Minor candidate. Your email address will be added to the Education Minor email list so you can be notified of opportunities in the field of Education, as well as Education Minor program and course updates. Your application will be processed internally — nothing will appear on your transcript until you have completed the Minor.

When to Apply

You should apply to the Education Minor only after you have attended an Information Session or met with the Education Minor Advisor.

Before submitting your application, please consider whether the ED minor is something you truly intend to finish and whether you will have enough time in your schedule to take the 5 required courses.

However, do not wait until you have completed all your requirements before you apply. Submitting your application form early in your program will enable us to keep you apprised of program updates and opportunities that might interest you, as well as assuring that you have adequately completed the requirements.

If you have questions about the application process, please contact the Education Minor Advisor: edminor@berkeley.edu or (510) 643-9303.
