English Education Major
The English education major equips students to become high school English teachers in the state of California. Completion of the program qualifies students as "subject matter competent," thus waiving the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET), and this bachelor's program also meets many of the prerequisites for credential programs in California.
English students develop critical-thinking skills from extensive study of the world’s literature to further their ability to read, write, and analyze well.
The English minor offers students a chance to experience three foundational courses in the discipline and provides an opportunity to customize a package of upper-division electives in literature, creative writing, or professional writing to suit their needs and interests.
