Minor Program

The Minor is structured to provide a substantial introduction to education through a broad-based and focused study of educational research, theory and practice.

The goals of the minor are to allow undergraduates to develop an understanding of the core issues facing educators and policymakers, to make connections to their major programs of study, and to provide rigorous preparation for graduate studies in Education.

Minor Program Overview

Honors Program

The Honors program provides a small number of students each year with the opportunity to pursue independent inquiry under the close mentorship of Stanford GSE faculty.

Honors students pursue a wide range of thesis projects with intellectual tools from a variety of academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. They often engage directly with communities of practice, working alongside educators and reformers on and off campus.
