Shaping skilled English educators through creativity and real-world experience
Inspire others to share your love of reading and writing with our English Teaching program. Considered one of the region’s best, our program gives you the tools, guidance and real-world experience for a rewarding career in English education.
Our faculty are not only master teachers, but thoughtful advisors and mentors to those who see themselves as educators. They offer a diverse spectrum of expertise—from Shakespeare to African literature, from 21st century journalism to deep knowledge of standards-based literacy education.
Our five-year Accelerated Master’s option allows you to work on requirements for your Master of Arts in Teaching degree while still in the bachelor’s program. You’ll spend the fifth year interning at an area school, preparing you to become state-certified to teach English Language Arts.
Combine your passion for reading and writing with theories of learning and teaching literacy—leading you to a career helping students develop the skills they need for a lifetime of learning.
