English Education

The English Education program draws from and contributes to a proud local and global heritage — the University of Iowa is known throughout the world as “The Writing University,” and Iowa City is the first UNESCO American “City of Literature” and the third designated in the world. 



The English Education programs begin and end with carefully designed internships in schools, where students have the opportunity to tutor, coach, and teach in classrooms. Students in the program study literature, writing, digital media, and other contemporary topics through classes taken from the world-renowned English department. They also take coursework in pedagogy and literacy.
