English/Language Arts Teaching Major

The English/Language Arts Teaching Major, in combination with the Professional Education Program, prepares you for a teaching career at the middle school, junior high, and high school levels. Our program blends knowledge of English Studies with methods of teaching Language Arts, including courses on teaching multicultural literature, young adult literature, and writing.

Before you declare the major:

Complete your general education Composition and Literature requirements. These courses are not prerequisites, but we strongly recommended them as preparation. Community college students planning to transfer to CWU can take equivalent courses.

  • Academic Writing I?
  • Academic Writing II?
  • Humanities Knowledge Area?

Please note: Completing these courses does not guarantee admission to Central Washington University or to the degree program.

Please apply to the major here. You will also need to contact the Curriculum, Supervision, and Educational Leadership Department. Your initial contact will be Corinne Grieve.

Completing the English/Language Arts Teaching Major

Take these courses early in your program:

  • ENG 302 Poetry and Poetics
  • ENG 303 Principles of English Studies
  • ENG 222 Multicultural Literature for Teachers

Take these courses near the end of your program, prior to student teaching:

  • ENG 422 Teaching Young Adult Literature
  • ENG 430 Teaching Writing in the Secondary School
  • ENG 488 Teaching Portfolio
  • ENG 492 Practicum

English 422, 430, and 492 are required prior to student teaching. English 430 and 492 must be taken concurrently. All other major requirements must be completed before or be completed concurrently with enrollment in ENG 488. Enrollment in ENG 488 is by permission.
