The Certificate Program in Teaching English in Two-Year Colleges is an interdisciplinary program housed in the Department of English and taught by faculty in both English and the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse. The program is designed to prepare prospective teachers of introductory classes in English, Writing, and the Humanities in city and community college settings. Participants in the Certificate Program will learn to teach critical and analytical reading, the processes and disciplines of writing, and other aspects of the arts, humanities, or communication curriculum in two-year colleges.
The Certificate is comprised of 16 hours of credit: three pedagogy-based courses and a teaching internship, enrolled as an Independent Study.
To be admitted to the Certificate Program, students must have completed or be currently pursuing a master's degree in English; Writing and Publishing; Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse; or a related field.
Applications are accepted at any time. Interested students should contact their program director or English Department Assistant Marc Schell for more information, email@example.com. Please email all application materials directly to Mr. Schell (not to Graduate Admissions).
Graduate students in English or a related field are eligible to apply for the internship even if they are not enrolled in the Certificate Program. Please contact Mr. Schell about applying for an internship.
Also, please note: Chicago-area two-year colleges operate on the semester system; therefore, the internship's duration does not correspond to DePaul's academic calendar. The intern should expect to complete the work for ENG 509 some time after the end of the quarter in which registered. A grade of "R" (indicating work in progress) will be assigned temporarily, to be changed to a letter grade when work is completed.
