Are you a high school teacher looking to boost your qualifications to teach dual credit courses in English?

Our M.S. Ed. program offers a concentration in English that provides coursework for high school teachers seeking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of this field in order to satisfy Higher Learning Commission (HLC) requirements for instructors of dual credit courses.
