Bachelor of Science in English Education Degree Program

BSE Mission

Chryst Hall

The Bachelor of Science of Education program at Millersville strives for excellence from its students, who, upon completion of the program, are highly prepared and well situated for competitive teaching placements.  The B.S.E. in English provides a broad foundational understanding in English studies while giving students opportunities to do advanced work from select areas in literature and writing.  The course work is built into the curriculum of the School of Education to develop the English specialization along with teacher praxis.  Since we expect excellence from our graduates, students in the B.S.E. program are required to maintain a 3.0 GPA.  All of our English majors receive a well-rounded education with classes in writing, film studies, language, and journalism to prepare them for demanding careers as professionals.
