Although programs from different colleges will vary, the education-related courses at my institution are mostly focused on psychology, teaching experience, and core subjects in the context of the classroom. The classes are generally quite laid-back, unless you have a tough professor or supervisor. Overall, I would highly recommend the major to anyone interested in the teaching profession. Good luck with your studies!

Some of my education classes were Art and Music in Teaching, Educational Psychology, Special Education, Working with English Language Learners, Assessment and Adaptation--just to name a few! Programs vary from university to university, but courses are generally focused on educational psychology, child development, best practices, and content knowledge. Say you want to be an English teacher, you will have classes focused on teaching English literature to a specific age group.
