Students who know that they would like to teach English at the secondary level can matriculate in a major specially designed to allow students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Education with certification as an adolescent English teacher in as few as 126 credits. This major combines the majority of the courses that English majors take with a uniquely tailored education curriculum that prepares students to be certified as English teachers in the New York State school system. This major also provides the ideal foundation to earn the master’s degree required of all tenured teachers in New York.

PARENT/GUEST NAME:

The program includes the literature traditions of the United States and Britain, and spans the world to introduce global themes, ethnic texts, and non-traditional publications. Beyond words on a page, the English department’s foundation in Humanities exposes students to other meaningful forms of expression, such as art, philosophy, theater, and music. For students with a special interest in pursuing a career in writing, formal concentrations in either Creative Writing or Professional Writing are available.

English and Teaching Certification

TOTAL NUMBER OF GUESTS*:

Medaille’s English program involves much more than reading classic selections of poetry, prose, and plays. Students are challenged to seek the deeper meanings in the language of literature by faculty members who are published (and award-winning) authors of literary criticism, poetry, fiction, and multimedia.
