English Language & Literature Teaching Licensure Concentration Secondary English 9-12 (BA)
The BA in English Language & Literature Teaching Licensure allows you to both major in English AND teach at the secondary level.
The B.A. English Secondary major is designed for the rigors of high school teaching and state licensure processes. This B.A. Secondary 9 - 12 teaching program provides the English content knowledge and pedagocial skills students need for career success as English teachers and literacy specialists working at the secondary school level. FSU’s High School English program has turned out some of the top educators of the state including Heather Harvey, Katherine Kropp, and Molly Dalyrmple, while others like Preston Caudle teach abroad, calling China his home now. Most teaching majors receive several high school offers upon graduation. We offer many choices in our English Department so that English teaching majors may pursue their interests as well as learn the ins and outs of pedagogy.
