Who We Are
Located in the Department of English Language & Literature, we work with students at all points in their journey to become knowledgeable and reflective middle and high school English teachers. At the undergraduate level, we prepare students for initial certification through the language, literature and writing for teachers major and minor.
English education, in collaboration with programs in the department of English Language & Literature and the College of Education, is a Bachelor of Arts program committed to developing and sustaining knowledgeable and reflective teachers of secondary English in a diverse society. The nationally accredited program is built on researched-based approaches to teaching language, literature, and writing. Students complete coursework leading to secondary teacher certification.
At the graduate level, we help teachers continue to strive for excellence in their teaching through the master's in English studies for teachers and the Eastern Michigan Writing Project.
