Beginning with the class of 2016, students interested in pursuing a career in education can choose an Education minor. These students include: 1) students who desire to begin preparations while at Centre College for a career in K-12 teaching, and 2) students with majors other than education who plan to work with children or adolescents (particularly religion, psychology, or sociology). 

Several worthwhile experiences include community-based education course work, educational internships, and study abroad offerings. Students also have the opportunity to pursue a Master’s program to obtain teaching certification at one of our partner institutions.

Centre has developed partnerships/pathway opportunities with both the Peabody College of Vanderbilt University and with the University of Louisville that will enable qualified students to enroll in a master’s degree program with initial certification in either elementary or secondary education. Students who are interested in either of the partnerships should seek advice from Education Program Faculty and attend informational sessions provided by the partner institution.
