English Education Major

Graduates from the program are teaching in classrooms locally and around the world. In fact, in the past five years, every English education major has landed a teaching job. Students take the same classes as English and writing majors, plus education courses that lead to Indiana licensure. In fact, all our recent majors passed the Indiana Core Assessments for educator licensure.

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages Major

Our program works particularly well with intercultural studies, English and writing, and Christian ministries. This is a double-major friendly program. Last year's TESOL grads all double-majored.

Available minors:
