The TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) program at Valparaiso University prepares individuals from a variety of backgrounds to teach English to non-native speakers in the U.S. and internationally.
Students master theory of second language acquisition, effective teaching practices, and methods of assessment of English language proficiency.
Graduates of our programs in TESOL have taught English in language schools, k-12 settings, and universities in the U.S. and internationally. Students who have completed the M.A. in TESOL have also pursued further study in doctoral programs in Education, Linguistics, and TESOL and Composition.
