About the Program

The English and Education with an Endorsement in P-3 and Teacher of Students with Disabilities program is designed to serve the various needs of students within the framework of traditional literary study, while preparing students for a career in secondary education.

Students are presented with a wide range of real-world experiences, such as teaching in a resource room, self-contained setting, or a general education inclusive classroom to develop their teaching skills, while they pursue their interests in writing and literature.

Student Outcomes

Our students have gone on to have successful careers in education with the assistance of Monmouth University’s extensive network of local school and district partnerships. At Monmouth, students are introduced to a variety of teaching environments and work with a diverse group of individuals, and small and large groups of students, making them more marketable upon graduation.

Undergraduate Research & Internships

Monmouth University students are immersed in the classroom as early as sophomore year and will have supervised clinical experience including 100 hours in the classroom.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the study abroad, Clinical Component Courses, Fieldwork for Clinical Experience and Component, Clinical Practice, applying for substitute teaching credentials, and our collaborative P-12 School Partnerships.
