English majors from either Literature or Linguistics may choose to complete the Teacher Certification program. Thus, there must be an agreement between the English Department and the Teacher Preparation Program. Aspiring teachers have set a curriculum which entails the completion of certain classes in education. As a result, the students from the English Department at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus routinely score the highest on the Teacher Certification Exam given by Puerto Rico’s Department of Education.
