Ph.D. Minor in Curriculum and Instruction

Doctoral students majoring in another department who desire a Ph.D. minor in curriculum and instruction should seek and enlist a faculty member in the department to serve as Ph.D. minor adviser (also known as the minor professor). The minor professor, in conference with the student and the major professor, approves the courses that will constitute the minor.

Twelve credits are required for a Ph.D. minor in Curriculum and Instruction. At least six of these credits must be in substantive, graduate-level courses taken in the department; this part of the requirement cannot be satisfied through independent reading, independent study, research, and thesis credits. With the approval of the minor professor, the remaining six credits may be met through an approved transfer of credits in substantive, graduate-level courses completed at other institutions. A maximum of three credits of the total 12-credit minor requirement may be met through graduate-level independent reading done in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
