Integrated English Language Arts Education- Bachelor of Science in Education

The Integrated English Language Arts Education major leads to a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. Approved by the Ohio Department of Education, this program prepares graduates to teach students in grades 7-12 in the areas of English (writing, language, reading/literature). In addition to meeting requirements of the Global Miami Plan, students take courses in English and Education. During their study, students observe and participate in urban and suburban/rural classrooms, culminating in a 15-week, full-time student teaching experience in which they work closely with mentor teachers in high schools or middle schools, eventually assuming instructional responsibilities for all classes.
