The English department at the University of Southern Indiana offers a major in English Teaching and minors in English Teaching and Language Arts Teaching. English Teaching programs prepare students to teach literature, composition and reading comprehension in elementary and secondary schools. In coordination with licensure programs in the Teacher Education Department, coursework addresses pedagogical issues in teaching English, as well as provides a strong background in areas such as literature, rhetoric and writing.

Note: Students entering the English Teaching program should review the College of Liberal Arts Teacher Certification Policy .

Elementary, Early Childhood and Special Education

Students planning to teach English in elementary schools (pre-kindergarten through grade six) should complete the English Teaching minor or Language Arts Teaching minor. Teacher licensure should be completed through a major in early childhood education, elementary education or special education, offered through the Teacher Education Department.  Students who are earning a bachelor’s degree in English Teaching are not eligible to earn the English Teaching minor.
