The Introduction to Education class (TED 1312) is one of the courses all of our first-year students have the option to take during the fall semester. It is an excellent segue to the Education major and introductory course to the field of education. If you enjoy this course, we recommend discussing the Informal Education or Education minors with your advisor.
The Introduction to Leadership class (LDS 1301) that first-year students may take is the first course in an optional Minor in Leadership Studies through the School of Education's Department of Educational Leadership.
We encourage every LEAD LLC student to pursue a minor. The minor programs offer engaging learning experiences for students, an opportunity to become well equipped as a leader, and distinctive resume builders that will set you apart on internship and job applications. We encourage you to explore the entire curricula and learn more at the leadership program website.
NOTE: Students will have the choice between taking TED 1312 and LDS 1301, depending upon availability. Each LEAD LLC student is required to enroll in either LDS 1301 or TED 1312.
