The Teacher Certification option prepares students to teach English in the public schools at all levels. It comprises essentially two majors: English literature and education. With respect to its English courses, it is the same course plan as that for the literature option along with the additional course of Young Adult Literature.
The program meets State standards for teacher certification in English P-12. Students choosing this option must apply to both the English Department and the Department of Middle and Secondary Education. For all transfers and new admissions to the University a G.P.A. of 3.00 is required for admission to the program.
