Department of English Education

1. Introduction
    The department of English Education was established as part of the College of Education in 2008 in response to the growing need to cultivate secondary school English teachers who can effectively teach English through English (TETE).  Based on many years of experience in the teaching field and in teacher training programs, facilitators in the department work towards developing highly skilled educators who are creative, innovative, have a strong sense of work ethic, and can effectively prepare students for a highly competitive globalized society.
 
2. Programs
    Offering both direct and indirect experience in the field of English teaching, English Education provides a comprehensive curriculum that aims at deepening student understanding of the fundamental principles and practices that underlie teaching and learning English. It emphasizes a spirit of co-operation, and encourages leadership that works towards strengthening and caring for others.  The department of English Education also offers a number of additional extra-curricular programs to help deepen student understanding of English education and further develop English language ability.  These include: exchange student programs, teachers forums and volunteer work.

 

3. Career Opportunities
    In accomplishing the goals of the program, students can graduate with a high level of English proficiency; sound understanding of the principles of English education; strong leadership skills, and the ability to creatively and flexibly apply theory to real-world contexts. Beyond teaching in the public or private sectors, these skills transfer well into many other areas of employment such as working for: foreign banks, international companies, interpretation and translation services, international law offices, copy writers, publishing companies and much more.
