Students need teachers who are passionate about both language arts and ministry. In the Secondary English Education major, you will learn to help middle and high school students think deeply and biblically about language and literature. The powerful classes taught by highly qualified faculty will prepare you to successfully communicate with students in the classroom and a one-on-one basis.
