Education involves the ability to teach, manage, and lead a group of people. Therefore, students majoring in management, psychology, social work, religion, and related disciplines would benefit greatly with a minor in educational studies. This minor would provide the background information on basic educational theories, child and adolescent psychology, and foundational knowledge about how their majors connect with the ability to teach, manage, and lead groups of people.
