M.A. in English with Certificate in Education

Student walking past Oreo

This option permits students who are especially interested in secondary school teaching to take coursework from the Villanova Education Department in tandem with their English coursework. Through the certificate courses, you can develop advanced teaching techniques, learn about lesson planning, and familiarize yourself with the uses of classroom technology, as well as cultivate more specialized knowledge in a range of areas of pedagogical theory and practice.

The Post-Baccalaureate Graduate Certificate in Education includes three required courses and two electives, one of which can be satisfied by a graduate English course.

This is not a PDE Certification Program and does not lead to PA Teaching Certification.
