Teaching is one of many careers paths that appeal to English majors and minors. Students take a number of paths into the classroom, including university MAT programs, national service corps, and credentialing programs. The resources compiled here provide an introductory "lay of the land" for those unfamiliar with the many options available for pursuing a teaching career. The list is not exhaustive, and the programs listed here have been variously criticized and supported, but we have vetted those listed here as some of the major, legitimate options.
We encourage students to consult with professors and others who have knowledge of the field and potential programs. For information about specific application details, check with individual program contacts and info pages.
