ENGLISH EDUCATION PROGRAM INFORMATION
Students planning to become certified as Secondary English Teachers must fulfill all the requirements for a regular English BA, in addition to coursework in the School of Education and Speech Communication. Before student teaching, students must complete a rigorous screening process and pass several state exams for Illinois teachers.
