This additional endorsement program prepares students to teach English Language Arts at the middle and high school, and must be accompanied by a professional education program and a qualifying endorsement in another content area. See the Early Childhood, Elementary, and Multilingual Education and Secondary Education sections of this catalog for program admission, completion, and teacher certification requirements.
Why Consider a Secondary, Additional Endorsement in English Language Arts?
An Additional Endorsement in English Language Arts provides prospective teachers with more teaching options, allowing them to teach English language arts classes as well as classes in the primary subject area in which they have trained. Being able to teach in two areas increases the number of job openings to which one might apply.
Middle and High School Teaching
A grade of C- or better is required for a student’s major or minor courses, and supporting courses for majors and minors. Courses required for a state teaching endorsement must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better.
