Reminders

  • Take the Intro class by the middle of your junior year.
  • Choose at least two electives from the Education Focused category. The third may be either Education Focused or Education General.
  • Choose electives from different disciplines; one may be in your major (but cannot be double-counted with your major).
  • If you are a major in a course we cross-list, please register as a major, not as an ESS student. Once the semester has started, contact Dr. Andrea Christensen to count the course for ESS.
  • Three credits of Research Lab (ESS 47602) can be counted as one Education Focused elective.
  • The Seminar in Educational Research is offered only in the fall of senior year.
  • Students who write a Thesis in Major must take an additional Education Focused elective.
  • Find information about Directed Readings here.
  • ESS will consider, on a case-by-case basis, courses not cross-listed with ESS but that have applicable content. For approval of a course, please contact Dr. Andrea Christensen, achrist1@nd.edu.

Enrollment

Students must be enrolled in the minor to register for ESS courses. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrea Christensen.
