The Secondary Education Program to prepare teachers of English is a fully accredited four-year undergraduate program leading to dual degree B.A. degree in the College of Human Science and Services and College of Arts and Sciences

The program requires a minimum of 36 credits of English studies and 39 credits of General Education course work. Students wishing to apply to this program are urged to see an education advisor at University College in their freshman year. Formal application to this program is in the sophomore year and requires the students to interview with selected School of Education faculty and to present an admissions portfolio at that time. Students with a strong academic background, an interest in literature and the English language, experience working with adolescents, and a desire to share these interests with a diverse population of young people are urged to apply.
