Students are strongly advised to consider fulfilling a minor in their course of study. A minor, such as a modern foreign language, communication, or theatre complements the English major, and gives the student preparation to seek licensure in an additional area by adding the second area to the Praxis exam. These particular minors are useful since high school teachers of English are often expected to coach debate, to supervise student publications, or to produce plays. Students planning to teach at a Christian school might also consider a minor in Bible.
