What Now: Alternative Routes to Secondary Education meeting

Do you want to teach but aren’t sure about completing the undergraduate program at Illinois? There could be many reasons that you may find it difficult to complete the undergraduate program in teacher certification this year and we are here to inform you of alternative ways that you can still achieve teacher certification!

Please join us for an informational meeting to discuss alternative routes to teacher certification.  We will be joined by a presenter from the Master’s with certification program at Illinois and a speaker from Teach for America.  This event is open to all students interested in teaching at the secondary, elementary, early childhood and special education levels.  Whether you were denied admission, waitlisted, came to the decision too late, are unsure about whether to pursue teaching as an undergraduate, or any other reason, you are welcome to attend this meeting! 

When: Tuesday, April 3rd, 4-5 p.m.
Where: 103 Mumford Hall

Summer Internship Class

Do you have a career-related internship this summer? Consider enrolling in ENG 451, an online mentored course for students with career-related internships that focuses on development of interpersonal and professional skills as well as basic business concepts.  The course is worth 2 hours of credit and takes place entirely online so it is available to students who are out of town while interning. Many students in the past have registered for ENG 451 if their internship requires them to be enrolled in a course while they are interning. Learn more about the course here, including information on tuition (there is an online tuition discount for University of Illinois students) and the syllabus. If you have questions, please contact Sarah Zehr, the course facilitator, at
