While many become classroom teachers, not all majors and minors do.  There are many possibilities.

Students choose to pursue a broad range of interests related to education: international education, administration, school counseling or psychology, social work, environmental education, art or music therapy, early childhood education, teaching English abroad, social justice advocacy, youth development programs, sports education/management, and more.
