Active Learning Opportunities

Quincy English majors have enjoyed internship experiences at more than 30 Quincy area corporations and agencies in activities such as public relations, management information systems, publishing, Internet applications, research, business communication, marketing, and sales.

If you decide to pursue certification to teach English in grades 6-12, you'll have the advantage of the Professional Development School (PDS) model. From your first Education course, you'll learn your craft in a local public or private school, continuously connecting theory with classroom practice. It's no surprise that research demonstrates the greater effectiveness of educators who have learned their craft through the PDS approach. A wide range of experiences and progressive responsibilities will enhance your teaching portfolio and give you the confidence of a seasoned professional.

Many English majors also gain experience by working for Quincy's student newspaper, The Falcon.
