The UVa-Wise Education Department offers students a choice of two minors.  Students who are seeking a teaching endorsement at the 6-12 level will choose a minor in secondary education.  Students who are seeking a non-teaching minor in library media will choose the library media minor. (A teaching endorsement in library media is available, see Library Media page for more information)   


A secondary education minor is for students who major in English, Mathematics, History, Biology, Chemistry, Foreign Language, Accounting, Business Administration, Economics, Music, or Theatre and would like to teach at the secondary 6-12 level.  Students will major in their selected discipline and minor in secondary education. 



Students can receive a minor in library media by taking the required 18 credit hours.  The minor is not for students seeking a teaching endorsement in library media. For more information about the library media program, see Library Media page.
