Minister = ministro

Ministry = ministério

 

Ministry of Education or Education Ministry = Ministério da Educação

 

The same "pattern" works for all other ministries:

Agriculture / Justice / Defence / Finance / Environment / Foreign (Affairs) / Health / Interior / Transport / Culture, etc. Ministry, or

Ministry of Agriculture / Justice / Defence / Finance / Environment / Foreign (Affairs) / Health / Interior / Transport / Culture, etc.

 

Both ways are used. I'm not sure which one is more common in the US. I guess Dale could help us out here.
