2020-2021 Catalog

 

English Education (5-12 Certification)

As an alternative to the regular English education course of study, students may choose a double major of English + secondary education. Students who are considering post-baccalaureate work in English following graduation instead of entering the teaching field immediately may want to choose this alternative. Both options — English education or English + teacher education — qualify the graduate for an Indiana teaching license in English.
