Teacher Certification in English

USAO’s English teacher certification program prepares students to teach English grammar and literature from 6th through 12th grades. The coursework combines the bachelor’s degree in English with the professional education core required in all of our teacher preparation programs.

The teacher certification program provides students with superior instruction in literary techniques, theory, and history while also giving them a solid foundation in how to pass on this knowledge in a secondary school setting.

All requirements for teacher certification programs are subject to change if new requirements are established by the Oklahoma State Board of Education, the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education or the Office of Educational Quality and Accountability​ (OEQA).
