Rossier: Undergraduate Minors

Dear USC Undergraduate Students,

We would like to take this time to share an exciting opportunity. Rossier School of Education will be offering two new minors for the coming 2015-2016 academic year. The two minors were developed to allow all students, including juniors and seniors, to complete the minor within an academic year.

**Rossier: Education and Society Minor **
The Education and Society minor seeks to examine education and its role in society. The minor is intended to help students develop broad perspectives on the purposes and forms of education and schooling including the purpose and history of schooling, the provision of equitable opportunities for all, the factors impacting teaching, learning and achievement, and the development of engaged citizenship for more just societies through education. Students enrolled in this minor will gain multiple perspectives on education locally, nationally, and internationally, including technology’s role in educational outcomes. The minor provides resources for students who may want to pursue careers in education after graduation—teaching, educational advocacy through non-profits or non-governmental organizations, university research, policymaking, or educational entrepreneurship. (no prerequisites)

The minor is developed to allow all undergraduate students, including juniors and seniors, to complete the program within one academic year. For additional information please contact Albert Park at albert.park@rossier.usc.edu or 213-740-2178.

**Rossier: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages Minor**
The Rossier School of Education offers an interdisciplinary minor in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). This minor is targeted to those undergraduates who wish to gain expertise in the field of English as a Second Language (ESL) or English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teaching. The minor in TESOL also prepares students for short and long-term careers in ESL and EFL teaching in both the US and international contexts. While students can combine the TESOL courses with any major, the curriculum will particularly benefit students in Linguistics, English, Foreign Languages, communication, international studies, and other related fields. However, with its emphasis on language and culture, as well as its focus on effective teaching and inquiry, minor in TESOL will complement almost any field of study. (no prerequisites)

The minor is developed to allow all undergraduate students, including juniors and seniors, to complete the program within one academic year. For additional information please contact Albert Park at albert.park@rossier.usc.edu or 213-740-2178.
