Instructor Certification Requirements:

The preferred preparation for teaching Early College Experience English courses is a Master’s of Arts degree in English with at least some coursework in rhetoric and composition: specially courses directly related to the teaching of writing from a college or university English or Writing Department—not a School of Education.

The minimum degree requirement for teachers wishing to teach Early College Experience English courses is usually a Master’s of Arts degree in English; however, a candidate with Master’s in Education who has completed at least two graduate level English courses taken through a college or university English or Writing Department  (one of which is in rhetoric and composition) may be considered.
