English Education Major
The English education major at Saint Mary’s 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 licensed as a 5-12 English teacher.
Teaching licensure requirements are subject to change; therefore, students considering teaching in this area should be in regular contact with both an English and an education adviser to be aware of any curricular updates that may be required.
Most graduates with an English education major teach in public or private middle or high schools. They also may pursue advanced degrees at Saint Mary's in special education, literacy, ESL/bilingual education, educational administration, curriculum and instruction, school counseling, and school psychology as well as graduate degrees in English related fields that are not tied directly to education.
