Program Notes

A minimum grade of C is required in all courses for certification; however, a 3.0 grade-point average is required to be eligible for student teaching.

Before being placed for student teaching, students must demonstrate writing competency through preparing a writing portfolio. Information is available in the School of Humanities office.

Program Requirements

The English certification program requires students to take English and education courses. All courses required for certification, including an intensive field experience, must be completed with a grade of C or better prior to student teaching. Please send your undergraduate transcripts to the Certification Officer, Joel Geary, at, in order for the program adviser to determine which courses have already been completed that would satisfy the requirements.
