The Extension Education minor is an interdisciplinary program of study designed to prepare students for work in the Penn State Cooperative Extension or other non-formal education programs.
The minor offers course work from several disciplines and addresses student needs in areas such as nonformal education methods, adult education, leadership, youth programs, and communication methods and media. A period of internship or field experience is required. To complete a bachelor's degree with a minor in Extension Education, a student is required to complete 18 credits from a list of recommended courses. The core program consists of 15 credits. Students are expected to strengthen their expertise by taking at least 3 additional credits from the courses recommended.
