B.A. in English High School Teaching
The major, "English--High School Teaching," is one of two 30 hour-free standing majors offered by the UNCG English Department. The other is "English." Both lead to the B.A. degree; however, the English-Education program leads to a degree plus a license issued by the State of North Carolina to teach English in Grades 9-12 in the State of North Carolina and other states which honor the certificate.
The English Education program is jointly supervised by the English Department and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Education . Heading the program in the Department of English is Director of English Education, Jeanie Reynolds (3311). Coordinating the program in Curriculum and Instruction is Amy Vetter. The Academic Advisors are all full-time members of the English Department, and departmental policies for English Education are set by an English Education Committee.
Like all other teacher education programs at UNCG, the English Education program is overseen by the Teachers Academy of the University, which is concerned with all university policies relating to teacher education. The English Education program is regularly reviewed by the State Department of Public Instruction, by the National Council of Teachers of English, and by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.
