Washington College recently announced the addition of a minor in Museum, Field, and Community Education. This minor is designed to prepare students from a range of disciplines to work as effective educators in settings other than schools.
The minor will combine courses in learning theory and design, communication and content area experience with field work and internship opportunities that are designed to apply these learnings in live environments.
"This new minor brings together many of the amazing opportunities that characterize learning at Washington College,” said Sara Clarke-De Reza, Ph.D, Assistant Professor of Education and Director of the Museum, Field and Community Education Minor. “We think that blending educational theory and deep disciplinary content knowledge with the chance to directly apply that knowledge in the real world is the perfect recipe for a transformative (and fun!) student experience!"
