Secondary English Education Endorsement

College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Secondary English Education Endorsement Requirements — 25 Credits

The Online Secondary English Endorsement (SEE) program is administered by the Department of English and designed for undergraduate secondary or K-12 education majors pursuing licensure in a field other than English or licensed secondary teachers pursuing an additional endorsement in English. (Note: this is not a program for undergraduate English majors.) Admission requirements for this program are described below.

The SEE curriculum is designed to prepare those seeking an additional endorsement in English Language Arts (ELA) or a post-baccalaureate license in English with the language, literature, and pedagogy knowledge and skills to meet the content requirements of the ELA classroom. Upon successful completion of the SEE program and the appropriate English PRAXIS exam, students will be eligible for the Colorado English / Language Arts Endorsement.

Admission Requirements:

Currently enrolled UNC students can apply to the Secondary English Education Endorsement program if they are in good academic standing, are pursuing a degree program that leads to licensure endorsement in an area other than English, and have satisfied LAC area 1.a and LAC area 1.b, with a B or higher in at least one of the courses used to satisfy those areas.

Program Requirements:

Secondary Endorsement Students must maintain a 2.75 GPA or better overall in their SEE courses to remain in the SEE program.

The SEE faculty reserves the right to place on probation or to require the withdrawal from the SEE program of any student who in their professional judgment fails to satisfy the requirements of scholarship, commitment, or performance necessary for success in the secondary English classroom.

Advising Information:

Students must consult with a Secondary English Endorsement advisor each semester prior to registering.  Contact the English Department for advisor information.

Students who have completed ENG 211, ENG 213, ENG 214, ENG 236, or ENG 262 before declaring the endorsement program may substitute up to six (6) credits of comparable literature content from these courses.  Students may also substitute up to six (6) credits of methods content from the following courses: EED 341 and EED 402.
