Explore the teaching - language arts minor at UW-Eau Claire

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's teaching - language arts minor prepares you to teach a variety of language arts-related subjects to children in grades 1-8. The minor is only for students in the College of Education and Human Sciences: Education Studies and must be combined with the elementary education major.

Throughout the minor, you'll study a variety of arts-related topics in a number of disciplines, providing you with a broad background in language arts. Explore courses in communication and journalism, English, education, American Indian studies, and women's, gender, and sexuality studies. Taught by passionate, supportive faculty members, coursework will help you to learn best practices and effective instructional techniques when teaching writing and literature. Half of the minor is made up of course electives, allowing you to study areas that most interest you. 

Completion of the minor qualifies you for licensure to teach language arts in middle childhood through early adolescence classrooms and prepares you for a rewarding and impactful career. Our graduates go on to instill a love and appreciation for language, reading and writing in elementary and middle school students, helping them to grow on both a personal and academic level.
