What will I learn in a PackTeach English degree program?

The faculty in English are committed to preparing students to read critically, think analytically, research thoughtfully, and write well in a variety of contexts. The English curriculum introduces students to major literary movements, current concepts of language and its acquisition, and theories of composition and criticism. Students completing the degree program will have a general command of the discipline and the skills necessary to the discipline. After graduation, they will use these critical skills both within the discipline of English as teachers, editors, writers and researchers, and in other related professional fields. In particular, this dual degree program offers students the opportunity to use this knowledge while also learning the skills to be an excellent teacher for students in secondary education. This dual degree program supports the commitment of the University of Nevada Reno to provide our communities with highly qualified, diverse professional educators.
