The major in English Education prepares students to teach the academic standards for English in grades eight through twelve. Students prepare in literature, grammar, and composition. In addition to the curriculum requirements outlined, students pursuing this degree must meet the criteria for admission to the Teacher Education Program, Student Teaching, and the Kentucky and Alice Lloyd Teacher Standards. Upon completion of this program, students must meet other specific Education Professional Standards Board requirements in order to secure certification.

Students in education must earn a 2.75 overall GPA in all course work in order to graduate. Note also that in each of the following areas a 2.75 overall GPA is required as well as no grade lower than “C”: 1) education professional courses, and 2) subject matter and all collateral courses.
