The English & Language Arts program at Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development prepares educators to teach English and language arts to middle and high school students. Students will learn vital skills for English and language arts educators, including teaching classic and contemporary texts, writing and composition, lesson design and instructional delivery, and more. 

The English & Language Arts program is committed to teaching for social justice and disrupting inequality based in white supremacy, anti-Blackness, cis-heteronormative patriarchy, ableism, and dominant English monolingualism. It supports the pursuit of antiracist and humanizing pedagogies in ways that equip students to learn and continue to improve across their teaching careers. Students in the program will consider how identity and intersectionality impact teaching and learning and learn to make choices that affirm the full humanity of their own students.

The English & Language Arts program provides a variety of degrees and certificates, including a Master of Education (EdM), a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS). The MAT also offers the ability to seek initial teaching licensure through the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program.
