M.A. in English: English Education

Designed for experienced secondary teachers who hold the NC initial license to teach English/language arts, the Concentration in English Education qualifies graduates for the Master’s/Advanced Competencies “M” license in English Education. The program includes core courses team-taught by faculty in the English Department and the College of Education which focus on issues in the teaching of English and on research methods and advanced study in English and professional education, including a core course in teacher leadership.

Aligned with the 1997 North Carolina Excellent Schools Act and the proposition of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, the program prepares graduates to become master teachers who are knowledgeable, effective, and reflective practitioners, responsive to equity and diversity. UNC Charlotte graduates are collaborative leaders in the field of English education.
