ENG 214: Theoretical Foundations for TESL -- Beginning Course in Program
The cycle for the Teaching English as a Second Language Certificate program begins again in Spring 2015 with ENG 214: Theoretical Foundations for TESL.  Students who are interested in living overseas, working in missions, working with refugees or immigrants in the US, or with religions/ world relief organizations should consider this opportunity.  Students take 5 TESL courses for the certificate/minor (plus the one literature class).  It’s a minor that can usually be studied with any other major.

ENG 231/331 & 235/335: Newspaper, Magazine, & Literary Production classes
Production classes offer students the chance to learn about and experience the world of writing and publishing. The Newspaper Production class (ENG 231/331) creates the Papyrus. Students gain experience in writing for news media, working with online news, editing, and meeting deadlines. Magazine Production (ENG 235/335) produces The Vista student magazine, giving enrollees practical experience in writing for magazines and working with designers to create a professional, unified publication. Literary Production (ENG 238/338) puts students on staff with The Scriblerus, GC’s first literary arts journal. Staff members learn to evaluate submissions of writing, art, video, and music to help produce each issue of the journal, and learn about the ever-growing world of online publishing.

Each of these classes gives students experience in the world of online writing—and, let’s face it, so much of our media is headed that direction. It also sharpens writing and editing skills, and looks good on a resume. They meet Wednesday evenings at 5:30 and usually last about one hour. Sometimes there is pizza and other deliciousness.
