As a liberal studies graduate, Jessica Logan ’21 hopes to inspire students to love learning through teaching math.
The liberal studies minor is a multidisciplinary program that adds foundational elements of K-8 subject-matter preparation and practical field experience to any student’s major course of study. The program provides students with the opportunity to develop a teaching philosophy and acquire basic subject-matter knowledge in five to seven content areas with an understanding of diversity and culture in a classroom setting; this may provide some preparation for substitute teaching and lesson planning.
