English Education Program Overview

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 the department of Applied Communication Studies. Before student teaching, students must complete a rigorous screening process and pass several state exams for Illinois teachers. Because the requirements of the major are fairly complex, we highly suggest that new majors familiarize themselves with the BA + Licensure packet, below.

Alert: Important changes are afoot in the School of Education, Health, and Human Behavior, and these changes affect students in English Education!
