English teachers are championed with the unique task of equipping students with skills they will use in almost every aspect of their daily lives. From reading and spelling to composition and critical thinking, English education extends far beyond interpreting classical texts. If you are interested in empowering students with these vital skills, a bachelor's degree in English Education may be right for you. 

The English Education program is designed to prepare students for a teaching career in grades six through twelve. This program is a collaborative effort between the English department and the School of Education. The School of Education collaborates with area schools to provide students observation and teaching experiences to enhance your learning. Students' education experience will culminate in student teaching.

What our students say

As an English education major, I am challenged by two very different departments. I begin each semester wondering what I will learn about myself, about history, about philosophy, or what new topic I will study in my English classes. My education classes have given me the opportunity to immediately observe and apply what I am learning in the classroom through field studies and practicums, activities that help me remember the material I learn so that I can actually use it as a teacher. At Trevecca, I have grown academically and have also learned more about myself–both in classes and out.

The English department at Trevecca has really expanded the way I think about the world.  The literature classes delve far beyond the surface, and class discussions require me to examine the text from every angle.  I've been extremely fortunate to study both creative writing and literature in Trevecca's English department. Studying at Trevecca is about more than increasing one’s knowledge base; it's a process of expanding one’s mind to think in new ways.
