The Language Arts Group major is designed to prepare Language Arts teachers for the elementary level. This program prepares teachers for the BX endorsement upon passing the Michigan State MTTC teacher’s exam. This program is for Teacher Education students who enjoy reading and writing and who desire to teach children at the elementary school level.
Graduates with the Language Arts Endorsement can teach K-8 Language Arts with other possibilities, such as:
- Group Communication
- Mass Media Literacy
- Interpersonal Communication
- Children's Literature
- Introduction to Oral Interpretation
Students in this major spend a semester student teaching under the direction of an experienced teacher at public and private schools throughout West Michigan. Students also have the option of completing part of their internship experience at a school overseas.
Many of our graduates have successfully obtained teaching positions in public and private throughout Michigan and in other states. And, many of our graduates have also taken positions in Christian and private school in countries throughout the world.
