Minor in Professional Certification
The professional certification minor is one of two pathways for students pursuing professional certification.
Requirements for the Minor in Professional Certification
Seven courses are required:
- ED101 (previously ED201)
- ED215 (for students in the class of 2025 and earlier, ED213 can be accepted instead)
In addition, students must complete a major in a department or program that corresponds to a field in which Colby offers certification. Note: Education 433/494A/494B, offered during the spring semester of the senior year, requires that professional certification candidates teach full time (8 a.m.-2 p.m., Monday-Friday). Other Colby courses cannot conflict with this daily commitment.
