English Teaching Major B.A.
What is English teaching?
Do you enjoy working with young adults? Do you love to share your enthusiasm for literature? Do you like to help others with their writing? If so, consider becoming an English teacher. This program will prepare you to teach middle- or high-school level English. You’ll study English literature and grammar, human development and learning, the education system and teaching practices. In your senior year, you’ll be able to apply for a fifth year of study and internship to fulfill New Hampshire’s teaching certification requirements.
Why study English teaching at UNH?
With the fifth year of study, this program allows you to complete a Master of Arts in Teaching or Master of Education degree. As a certified teacher in New Hampshire, you’ll also be qualified to teach in several other states. We offer study-abroad programs at Cambridge University and in London. You’ll find inspiration through our Writers and Speakers Series, which invites published writers and prominent literary scholars from around the country to talk about their work, as well as through a variety of local programs offering opportunities to get involved with teaching English as a second language, primary and secondary education, and writing.
