Why Choose English with an Education Minor?

Bolster an interest in English with training in secondary education, and multiply your career opportunities. Whether you find yourself leading a high school classroom, tutoring program or multi-lingual overseas corporation, you’ll guide people to important discoveries about language and culture.

Strike a unique balance with interdisciplinary study in English and Education: Explore writing and literature—from mythology to modern drama—alongside faculty with years of experience as editors, playwrights and essayists. And, with guidance from Education faculty, learn effective strategies—including the use of emerging technologies—for teaching language arts to adolescents, including ESOL, special education, multicultural and at-risk populations.

As a student yourself, you'll find your voice through seminars and the Sandhill Review literary magazine. As a future educator, you'll engage with classmates in both English and Education; then model that collaborative classroom community among secondary students in your field placement.
