English Dual Credit Teaching Preparation, Certificate

This graduate certificate program offers a cohesive set of coursework for high school English teachers who wish to meet the credentialing standard for dual-credit instructors in the state of Ohio. This online Certificate forms a foundation for the teaching of general education classes in both Composition and Literature, providing 18 hours of coursework in the discipline for those high school teachers who already have or who are working toward Master's degrees. Classes are offered through web-based instruction by experienced professors.

This Certificate’s courses deepen teachers’ knowledge of the subjects commonly taught in CCP classes. Upon completing the Certificate, they are more fully equipped to teach college-level Composition 1 and 2, as well as general education literature surveys, and they meet state-set standards for doing so.
