The English Education program has received national recognition from the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). The English Education Program at Manhattanville College prepares graduate students to work with secondary students in middle school or high school as teachers of English Language Arts in grades 5-12. Manhattanville's program includes a study of the history, evolution and development of the English Language and its various grammars as well as Adolescent Literature. Students in the English Education program must also take courses in the teaching of writing, middle school philosophy and teaching with technology. These additional courses prepare students to teach a well-rounded language arts curriculum that includes traditional literature as well as more diverse readings, language skills, and the processes and products of composition.
