Florida State University’s Foreign and Second Language Education (FSLE) program will prepare you for a rewarding career in teaching English as a second language (ESL) and foreign languages, such as Spanish, Italian, German, etc.


In the master’s program in Foreign and Second Language Education at Florida State University, you have the opportunity to follow either an education or a research track. 

Learning outcomes

The education track offers solid theoretical and practical training to prepare you to teach English to speakers of other languages in the United States or abroad. In addition to offering the same coursework, the research track provides you with the opportunity to participate in individual and/or group research related to second language learning and teaching culminating in a thesis. This track also prepares you to pursue your FSLE education at the doctoral level. The master’s program is offered both online and on-campus, so you can choose the track that best fits your schedule. As an added bonus, you’ll earn a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) automatically when you complete the master’s program!
