program overview

Minor in Education

The Education minor allows all Colby-Sawyer students to explore the field of education through a combination of coursework and fieldwork. This minor provides students with a broad background of knowledge in education, psychology, and sociology, all areas which intersect in school environments. Note: Students who complete this minor are not eligible for New Hampshire Teacher Certification.

Capstone Project

Every senior completes a Capstone project, a culmination of work in their fields of study that allows them to demonstrate a deep understanding of a body of knowledge and perspectives informed by that knowledge. Students display and discuss their Capstone projects with the college community and area residents during the Susan Colby Colgate Scholars Symposium each spring.

Child Development & Education Majors Club

The Child Development Club is involved in numerous service projects, including two clothing drives per year to benefit area organizations.
