Liberty’s B.Ed. in English Education is broken down into 4 core foundations: education courses, practicum and gate courses, English courses, and student teaching. Your education courses explore the major aspects any teacher has to learn, such as evaluating student learning, creating curriculum, and seeing behavioral and individual differences between students.

As an English education student, you can complete additional courses focused on grammar, literature, writing styles, and etymology. The practicum and student teaching courses will then put your knowledge to the test. You can work in the classroom alongside a licensed teacher to see how the principles you’ve learned apply in the real world.
