Why English education?
The English education major is designed to prepare students for a career in secondary school teaching. In addition to the requirements listed below, students must complete the Teacher Education Program (secondary level) to be certified. Please note: course work leading to teaching certification may be reconfigured for this area of study. Licensure requirements are subject to change; therefore, students considering teaching in this area should be in continuous contact with the chair of this program and the School of Education for a list of required courses.
A majority of our graduates pursue classroom teaching in public or private middle or high schools; others go on to seek advanced degrees in special education, literacy, educational administration, curriculum and instruction, school counseling or school psychology.

In this course, students explore the advent and establishment of Christianity as the dominant mode of discourse in the Medieval and Early Modern periods of British Literature. This investigation hinges upon exposure to countercurrents which Christianity operated against as it established its primacy (such as paganism, Judaism, Islam), as well as to tensions within Christianity itself (heresies, humanism, patriarchy v. feminism, and the division between Catholicism and Protestantism). While the course thus is historical and cultural in its overall theme, the emphasis is on close reading and discussion of literary texts.
Offered in alternate fall semesters. Prerequisite: E250.
