About

As national demographics change, there is a rapidly growing need for education professionals who are skilled in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), including English as a Second Language, Dual Language Education and Bilingual Education.

Overview

The program, with a concentration in TESOL, is designed for graduate students who are interested in becoming prepared to teach English learners in Pre-K through 12 classrooms as well as adult education settings. Graduate students who complete the 18 credit hour endorsement in ESL and/or Bilingual Education may choose to continue their education toward a Master of Arts degree. 

The programme

The endorsement in ESL and/or Bilingual Education can be added to a current teaching license. Graduate students who are interested in obtaining an M.A. in Education, with a concentration in TESOL, are not required to be licensed teachers and will gain the preparation needed for teaching English in community settings, both in the U.S. and abroad. Completing the M.A. does not grant state licensure.
