The English Studies for Teachers program at the New Mexico State University is designed primarily as a professional development tool for licensed, practicing teachers in the public schools.


Program Description

The English Studies for Teachers program at the New Mexico State University provides teachers with the opportunity to enhance content area expertise in English studies and/or obtain a basis for an additional teaching endorsement. Students take courses across a wide range of topics within English Studies. Students select one of these four areas of specialization: composition, rhetoric, professional communication, creative writing, film, or literary study. Students may also supplement these areas with related coursework in communication studies, education, journalism, speech, and theater.

The faculty in the Department of English approach research, teaching, and other professional practices from multiple perspectives. We value collaboration and synthesis. We encourage critical engagements that challenge the borders traditionally drawn between theory and practice, production and reception, and creativity and critique. We promote situated inquiry that encourages teachers to develop a broad view of English Studies and to relate that understanding to teaching in the discipline.
