A degree in English Education can lead to a rewarding and socially fulfilling career. Teachers of English shape their students’ critical thinking and writing skills while also performing the important civic duties of broadening students’ understanding of human culture and history. Teachers also enjoy stable employment opportunities that provide greater work/life balance than many other fields of employment. If you love literature, poetry, film, storytelling, history, philosophy, religion, and other studies in the humanities and would like to share that love with others, the English Education program might be just what you are looking for.
