Building a New Generation of Professional English Teachers

The English Department runs Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs in Education.

  • The B.Ed. is an academic professional training program for new English teachers for elementary schools and schools in the upper division. English courses and practice teaching comprise one component of the double-major academic degree and/or English teaching certificate.
  • The M.Ed. is a two-year academic professional development program carried out entirely in English. The program entails research and practical applications for experienced English teachers.

Faculty members, who bring a wide range of professional and academic experience to both programs, demonstrate sensitivity, professional guidance and support to their students.

The English Program includes academic and practical components required for the double-major B.Ed. degree and/or Certificate for Teaching English in elementary schools (4th-6th grades) or in the upper division (7th – 10th grades).

Help and support are provided throughout the experience. Personal requests and college considerations are taken into account in placing students in schools.
