Inside English Teacher Education

English teachers instruct middle, secondary and postsecondary students. Participants in an English teacher education program typically study humanities, American and British literature, grammar, writing and public speaking. Some classes focus on specific writers, such as Shakespeare, while others focus on different literary periods, such as Romanticism or the Renaissance.

Education Information

Bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs are available for aspiring English teachers, and concentrations may be in English or English education. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), aspiring middle and high school English teachers must have a bachelor's degree in English or education and a teaching license (www.bls.gov). To teach at the postsecondary level full-time, a doctorate degree in English is usually required, but 2-year colleges may hire candidates with only a master's degree in English.
