Take the Intro class by the middle of your junior year.

Choose at least two electives from the Education Focused category. The third may be either Education Focused or Education General.

Choose electives from different disciplines; one may be in your major (but cannot be double counted for your major).

If you are a major in a course we cross-list, please register as a major, not as an ESS student. Once the semester has started, contact Ann Primus Berends to count the course for ESS.

Three credits of Research Lab (ESS 47602) can be counted as one Education Focused elective.

The Seminar in Educational Research is offered only in the fall of senior year.

Students who write a Thesis in Major must take an additional Education Focused elective.

ESS will consider, on a case-by-case basis, courses not cross-listed with ESS but that have applicable content. For approval of a course, please contact Ann Primus Berends.
