Educational issues surround us and influence our development as a
society. Whether entering the field of education, or considering
another field, students will encounter educational issues
throughout their careers. They cut across disciplines.
The UC Davis Undergraduate Courses in Education are designed to
inform and engage students in an exploration of many of these
issues. Students have opportunities to work in diverse
educational settings and examine their views with their peers and
professors. The UC Davis Minor in Education requirements will
prepare future leaders to be knowledgeable about the everyday
educational issues they will encounter as educators, researchers,
policymakers, business leaders, parents, and citizens.
