What is English/Secondary Education at WVU like?
“An English major ... what are you going to do with that ... teach?” Why, yes!
Secondary English language arts teachers are privileged to teach content that allows them to get to know their students well through discussions about texts and through many forms of student writing. If you’re interested in sharing your love of language, literature and writing with others, this is the major for you.
In four years, you’ll not only have completed all the requirements for graduation, but also for teacher certification in West Virginia. You’ll have spent many hours in local schools, observing, tutoring and student teaching, and will be ready to apply for teaching positions or jobs in other educational settings.
