English Education Concentration
Department Chair: Krista S. Mallo, Ph.D.
The English Education Concentration in the Interdisciplinary Studies major is designed for students who intend to seek employment as a English teacher of English Language Arts for grades 6-12 in private, public, or charter schools. This concentration provides appropriate preparation for additional studies at the graduate level in English Education, Literacy Studies, Cultural Studies, the Humanities, Educational Leadership, or Curriculum & Instruction.

Students successfully completing this program will demonstrate:
- Advanced skills in written communication
- Advanced knowledge of the Western intellectual tradition
- Advanced ability to integrate their Christian faith with the content areas of English and Education
