Open doors of opportunity by teaching English to speakers of other languages with a M.Ed. with an ESL/TESOL concentration. The English as a Second Language program is offered by University of Houston Victoria.


The Master of Education in English as a Second Language at University of Houston Victoria will help you develop a solid academic foundation in second language theory and pedagogy in teaching English or any language as a second language in cross-cultural situations. You will be prepared not to only teach a second language effectively, but also train teachers and administer programs in this field.

English Language Learners are the fastest-growing student population in U.S. schools. While the ELL student body continues to increase dramatically, the number of well-trained teachers who can provide effective instruction to these students falls short. Additionally, with English serving as the international language, tens of thousands of students around the world are required to learn English in grade schools. Thousands more study English to pursue educational programs and careers that require English language skills. Immigrants and refugees to the U.S. often need to acquire English to survive and succeed. There is a considerable demand for qualified teachers of English and those who can take a leadership role in this high-need area within and outside the U.S.

What can I do with this concentration?

Graduates can pursue positions as ESL instructors, curriculum developers, instructional specialists, program coordinators, administrators and professors in a variety of settings, including K-12 schools, school districts and regional service centers, intensive English language programs, adult basic education programs, government/military schools, private international language schools, community-based language programs for immigrants and refugees, corporate training/consulting, and community colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. Current teachers of English to non-native speakers can pursue this degree to widen their professional opportunities. This program is suitable for those who want to teach or administer a program of not only English but also any language as a second language.
