Degrees – English
(With and Without Teacher Certification)
The main purpose of the area in English is to enable students to prepare for teaching English in grades 8-12. However, students in English not seeking teacher certification may elect to pursue the area instead of a major. A minor is not required.
A major in English opens the doors to many professions and careers. It is especially appropriate for students who intend to pursue graduate studies in English or a related field (law, philosophy, theology, etc.).
The English minor is a secondary program of study for students interested in exploring the power of the English language.
