About

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in English Language Learners, offered by Vanderbilt University, is open to students who already possess a state teaching license or who wish to pursue advanced study in teaching linguistically diverse students in international settings.

Overview

Multilingual students’ language and literacy learning is distinct from monolingual students’ learning. The graduate program in English Language Learners, offered by Vanderbilt University looks at cultural, cognitive, social, political, identity-oriented, and individual influences and processes on education. 

The program offers two unique tracks:

  • Teaching English Language Learners in the U.S. requires intermediate proficiency in a language other than English.
  • Teaching English in an International Setting is open to students who wish to teach English language learners in an international setting. This track is aligned with Teachers of English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL) standards.

In the Department of Teaching and Learning, you are partners and future colleagues. Our vision is brought to life through collaborations with our students, partnering schools, community organizations, and the vibrant Vanderbilt community.
