Overview

The Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in English as a Second Language/Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages 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.
