Teacher Certification

CLASS English majors wishing secondary teaching certification must complete the appropriate English and education courses listed in the "Teaching Majors and Minors" in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction section of the UI catalog. Students should plan their programs with their English advisor; they should also see a College of Education advisor regarding certification requirements [NOTE: for those who wish to double-major by also fulfilling requirements for the 46-Credit English Teaching Major or the 34-Credit English Teaching Major in the College of Education, note that those requirements will be revised to align closely with the Department of English Teaching Emphasis, beginning Summer 2014, though that college may keep Engl 175 rather than Engl 257 or 258, as a preferred course].
