Computer science is a rapidly growing field, and skilled teachers are in demand. Become one of them. In this 18-credit undergraduate minor, you will take computer science classes at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Tandon School of Engineering, and computer science education courses and education electives through NYU Steinhardt's Department of Teaching and Learning. You'll be prepared to teach computer science and programming to children and adolescents, working in schools, museums, community centers, and other educational settings. This minor is open to all undergraduate NYU students.
This minor does not qualify you for initial teacher certification. If you are interested in becoming a fully certified classroom teacher, consider one of our undergraduate or master’s programs in teacher education.
