Department of Applied Sciences, Technology and Education
This minor allows students involved in education programs the opportunity to add an additional endorsement area to their credentials. The Utah State Office of Education has made changes in the requirements for endorsements. They have created a separate content area for middle school Technology and Engineering Education with fewer education requirements for endorsement. The required course experience is covered in 5 courses taught in the Technology and Engineering Education program at USU. The minor in Technology and Engineering Education provides students in other fields of education the opportunity to expand their marketability while addressing the shortage of technology and engineering teachers in Utah. This endorsement attaches to secondary licenses only, not to CTE licenses. In order to declare this minor, a student must be in a teaching major, earn a grade of C or better in his/her minor coursework, and maintain an overall minor GPA of 3.0 or above.
