Secondary Education (English)

Primary responsibility for the program resides in the College of Arts and Sciences, with support from the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions. The collaboration allows for in-depth focus on the English major with a concentration of courses in education which prepare the student for initial certification.

If you are interested in teaching English at the secondary level, the University of Hartford's Bachelor of Arts (BA) will prepare you for initial certification and the English endorsement for grades 7-12.  The program features a full-semester of integrated instruction and experience in an urban or suburban public school setting, under the supervision and guidance of clinical professors and a trained cooperating teacher.

Accreditation and State of Connecticut Certification The Secondary Education program with the English endorsement is approved by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) as well as the state of Connecticut Department of Education. The Educational Testing Service's Praxis II exam is utilized for certification of teachers in Connecticut.  See pass rate report.
