Graduate students majoring at the M.S. in Adolescence Education - English (Grades 7-12) at Long Island University (LIU) must select an academic specialty from the Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum. Such study complements the Adolescence Childhood courses and provides you with specialized knowledge in one particular discipline. This adds depth and breadth to your level of teaching expertise. It is expected that you, as a teacher, will transmit your enthusiasm for the focused subject to young learners, helping them to grow intellectually and socially. You may select English from among the Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum (18 credits).
Students in the Adolescence Education program also will take 27 credits in teacher education courses.
The 45 to 48 credit graduate degree program will prepare you to teach English to young learners (ages 9 to 14) while deepening your knowledge and appreciation of the English language and its great literature.
