An English major who wishes to prepare for a career in secondary school teaching can earn a bachelor’s degree in English with a secondary teaching certificate.   In close consultation with Department of English and College of Education advisors, the student will develop a plan of work that satisfies the requirements of the English B.A. program and includes the subject area and professional courses required for teacher certification.

Note: Students seeking Elementary Education Certification with a Language Arts Group Major should consult with an advisor in the School of Education.
