lynch school of education

Interdisciplinary majors are based in two or more Arts & Sciences disciplines that are relevant to the teaching endeavors of elementary teachers.

These majors are available to undergraduate students in the Lynch School pursuing majors in Elementary Education or Applied Psychology and Human Development.

American Heritages
Recommended for students who are interested in the American heritage from literary and historical perspectives. Two tracks are available for students pursuing this major.

General Science
Designed for students seeking a broad and general background in science to help them teach in an early childhood, elementary, or special education setting. Nine courses are required from four science departments: biology, chemistry, physics, and geology.

Mathematics/ Computer Science
Recommended for students who have had four years of high school mathematics and wish to specialize in the area of mathematics and computer science, but who are not interested in the traditional mathematics major because of their intended career objective as elementary, early childhood, or special needs educators.

Perspectives on Spanish America
Recommended for students who may have had at least two years of high school Spanish and wish to develop Spanish language skills, coupled with a background in the historical, sociological, and literary traditions of Hispanic cultures.
