This degree program is designed for the teacher candidate who wants to teach English at the high school level. There are two main areas of emphasis: English and education. The English major component includes 30 hours of courses (beyond the general education requirement) to meet South Carolina certification standards in English. Additionally, the teacher candidate must complete 39 hours of professional education courses in order to be certified. This program is nationally recognized by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
