Speaking their language
Would you like to cross paths with some of the greatest writers of all time? A wide range of literature is waiting for you to read, analyze, and critique, and the English education program will teach you to exercise critical thinking skills. You’ll also sharpen your own composition skills in a variety of genres such as creative, technical, journalistic, and argumentative writing. By the time you leave Maranatha, you’ll be ready to engage others in an exciting and challenging world of literature, composition, and grammar.
English (without) education
If you still want to learn more about the English language and literature, but do not want to be a teacher, then you will want to look into Maranatha's English major. This major immerses you in a wide range of literature, while teaching important critical thinking skills. You will learn to evaluate written material, whether from a famous author or pieces you write yourself. The English major also teaches you valuable writing skills which can be useful in a wide range of fields.

Our faculty knows English
After teaching at Maranatha for over 20 years, Mrs. Angela Morris knows teaching isn’t just about classroom instruction.
“Some of my favorite times are when students stop by my office to talk to me, not merely about English, but also about their burdens about friends, or home, or their own struggles.”

Teacher licensure program
Teacher education students at Maranatha can choose to follow a licensure program that will allow them to teach in the public school setting. The license program requires two teaching placements and a full semester of student teaching.
Once students have completed the program, they will be eligible to apply for a teaching license through the Department of Public Instruction.
