B.S. in Adolescence Education - English (Grades 7-12)

Mastering English is essential to success in today’s world. The Bachelor of Science program in Adolescence Education: English at LIU Post prepares a new generation of English teachers to help students read, write and appreciate the world’s most influential language. From decoding the mysteries of Shakespeare to shaping a straight-forward declarative sentence, the study of English develops clear thinking and analytical skills, and deeper insights into the full range of human potential.

The program includes supervised practice teaching in actual classrooms at two grade levels (7 to 9 and 10 to 12), allowing you to observe certified teachers, interact with students, and understand the adolescent mindset as it relates to the English language. This TEAC-accredited program will equip you to teach the great literature of the past and the works of the most acclaimed contemporary writers, and to strengthen students’ comprehension and communication skills.

After you complete the degree requirements and successfully pass all certification tests (LAST, ATS-W and CSTs), you will be awarded Initial Teaching Certification by the New York State Department of Education to teach English to grades 7 to 12.

The Bachelor of Science in Adolescence Education: English is a joint program between LIU Post’s College of Education, Information and Technology and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The teacher-education programs in LIU Post's Department of Curriculum and Instruction are nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
