English Majors seeking a Bachelor of Arts with Secondary Certification in English Language Arts and Reading (Grades 8-12)In keeping with the accreditation requirements of NCATE/NCTE, an English secondary education-accrediting agency, the Department of English must assess the progress of all students pursuing a BA in English with a certification in Secondary Education in order to verify that our courses are enabling them to meet the prescribed NCATE/NCTE standards in English Language Arts competencies. Please let me know if you are an English major/ Secondary Education minor as soon as possible.
