Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Secondary Education Major, English Education Teaching Field, seeks to help prepare students to live and teach in a complex, technological, and diverse world by introducing them to varying perspectives offered by a thorough study of literature and language. Through these perspectives, sociological and personal barriers may be broken down, and the possibilities as well as the paradoxes of human existence may be better understood and taught.

The primary objectives of the Secondary Education Major, English Education Teaching Field  curriculum include the following:

  1. To encourage Secondary Education majors with a concentration in the English Education Teaching Field to think critically and to communicate their thoughts effectively by helping them develop the skills necessary to understand and utilize the English language;
  2. To contribute to the liberal arts education of these majors by exposing them to the diversity and richness of the world’s best literature;
  3. To prepare Secondary Education majors with a concentration in the English Education Teaching Field to become reflective problem solvers, capable of teaching English on the middle or secondary levels, in a country as ethnically diverse as ours;
  4. To give these majors a knowledge of the basic tools of effective written communication, technology, and an understanding of literature that will enable them to pursue any vocation and function in a diverse and global work world.

 In addition to the Core Curriculum, the educational professional studies courses, and the requirements for specialty English content, students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts in Secondary  Education, English Education Teaching Field must complete 6 credits of 100-level Spanish, French, or German courses or the placement equivalent.
