English Education Studies, Non-Certification
Degrees Offered: EdM
Certification Options: This program does not lead to New York State teacher certification.
English education is concerned with the teaching of literature and composition in secondary schools and colleges and universities. Programs take a broad humanistic approach and emphasize research and practice in language, writing, and response to literature. Students study theory, research, and practice. Graduate students tutor and conduct research in local schools and are encouraged to publish their work and present papers at local, state, and national conferences. We offer an initial certification at the adolescence level, and a combined initial/professional certification with an Ed.M. at the middle and adolescence levels. The doctoral program in English education may include coursework in such areas as literature, composition, media studies, new literacies and language, in addition to research, pedagogy and curriculum.
