The Department of English

Major in English Education

The Option in English Education offers pre-professional preparation for students that wish to teach English in middle schools and high schools. This option*, when combined with the Minor in Secondary Language Arts, fulfills the requirements for the Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in English (also known as the CSET Waiver), which is one of the requirements for earning a California teaching credential. For those interested in teaching at a collegiate level, this major sets them up well for graduate programs in English, grounding students in literary studies, composition and rhetoric, linguistics, and creative writing.

*Students who began at Chico State in Spring 2021 or earlier may not need the Minor in Secondary Language Arts to earn the CSET Waiver..
