Our language arts education program will turn you into an outstanding language arts teacher and writer. You’ll take liberal arts and literature courses alongside education courses and spend time observing and teaching in local classrooms. You’ll learn about child and adolescent development, curriculum, methods of teaching, and more. You'll have the ability to add on the I/S (independent study) licensure and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) options. You’ll graduate ready to be licensed to teach language arts to seventh- through 12th-graders in Ohio.

Here, you’ll join a close-knit family of English-language lovers. From the time you arrive on campus until you graduate, you’ll be guided by the same faculty advisor. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships with your fellow language arts education majors. Our dedicated professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, creative endeavors, field experiences and career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success and will open doors for you. 

Our small setting equals big opportunity. From assisting a professor with research to attending a professional conference, taking a master class with a renowned author to studying abroad, you’ll discover countless opportunities to expand your horizons and build your résumé.

It takes a special blend of talent, passion and skill to teach language arts. Rest assured; we’ll help you build a career doing what you love – reading, writing and teaching!
