Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
This TESOL program provides students with the professional knowledge and skills necessary to teach English to speakers of other languages in the United States or abroad. The program offers three tracks to accommodate students with differing educational needs:
a TESOL licensure minor;
a TESOL minor, and
a TESOL certificate.
Foreign Language Requirement:
Completion of a minimum of a one-semester college-level foreign language course or its equivalent.
English Language Requirement:
A grade of “C” or higher in ENGLISH 1230.
The TESOL certificate prepares students to teach English abroad or in adult ESL programs in the U.S. The certificate is open to all students regardless of their major. Note: Certificate programs do not qualify for financial aid. It would be particularly useful for those who wish to experience other cultures or work for international companies and organizations.
