English, Rhetoric, and Writing
Secondary Education Concentration
Students who want to teach English in grades 7-12 combine an English major with a Secondary Education minor. They will graduate from Berry ready to become certified teachers with a special endorsement in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, with a strong background in both English studies and teacher preparation courses. The concentration includes courses in linguistics, Shakespeare, adolescent literature, and writing, with further electives in literature or language. Students interested in the Secondary Education minor should begin taking courses for it in their freshman and sophomore years.
