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.
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.
- Spanish: Many grads find that foreign language skills give them more real-world opportunities. In our program you'll do classroom and field work.
