Undergraduate

Minor in Education

Since the launch of the school in 2017, SOE has built its undergraduate portfolio by regularly offering courses targeting the undergraduate student body. This has culminated into the launch of SOE’s first undergraduate program: the Minor in Education. The interdisciplinary minor is intended for all undergraduate students at LUMS; students that are keen to diversify their undergraduate learning have the opportunity to engage with education discourse and broaden their understanding of issues such as education and social justice, teaching and learning, education policy and practice, education technology, the role of education in conflict settings, etc. Situated at the nexus of research, policy and practice, the innovative curriculum provides a substantial introduction to education through coursework that integrates academic and field-based learning. From a disciplinary perspective, the course content draws upon various economic, political, social, cultural, and philosophical contexts to understand foundational issues within education such as equity, reform, diversity, accountability, policy and advocacy.
