English Major with Education Minor

The minor in Secondary Education is designed for those who may be interested in teaching in private, parochial, or non-traditional settings. Although the program does not include an opportunity for student teaching or licensure, students will take courses in the Secondary Education sequence and participate in field experiences.

Students with a major in English and a minor in Secondary Education may be eligible for a one-year MA program with teaching certification. Applicants to the MA program must have a 3.0 overall GPA and a 2.75 GPA in English, satisfactory scores on the GRE or the Miller Analogies Test, three letters of recommendation, and a completed graduate application.
