English Licensure Placement
The English with Licensure Program boasts a superlative placement rate for its graduates: for those seeking immediate employment, our placement rate for the past six semesters is at 100%. Our students complete the traditional English major and receive secondary teaching certificates, which prepares them for successful careers at both middle schools and high schools. Recent graduates have secured teaching positions at Hattiesburg High School, N.R. Burger Middle School, Petal High School, Perry Central High School, Oak Grove High School, Oak Grove Middle School, Forrest County Agricultural High School, Purvis High School, West Lauderdale High School, Brookhaven High School, and Jefferson Middle School; others have become 7-12 teachers in Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida. Some English with Licensure majors prefer to enter graduate programs after completing the B.A., which include master’s programs in English, library science, and education.
