The English Education program strives to prepare teacher candidates to become practitioners in diverse and dynamic school settings. The skills and knowledge required for these candidates to function effectively in such an environment include both subject matter content and teaching strategies. The first is acquired primarily through coursework completed in the College of Arts and Sciences; the second is incorporated into the education component of the program. Congruent with professional standards and expectations, this program requires that graduates demonstrate knowledge of a broad range of language skills which include: understanding of the history and structure of English; familiarity with a range of literary genres, styles, and devices, as well as selections representing the cultural diversity of our world; the ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing; awareness of the many purposes for which one uses speaking, writing, reading, and listening; and an appreciation of the impact of nonverbal communication modes on our culture.
Those entering the College of Education and Human Services must meet University admissions requirements as well as specific COEHS admissions criteria.
