TESOL Licensure Option of M.Ed. in Education, Equity, and Cultural Diversity

 

Individuals who have completed a teaching endorsement at the undergraduate or graduate level may seek additional licensure in TESOL by substituting electives for required TESOL endorsement courses, and by adding the TESOL practicum (1 credit) and Student Teaching (3 credits).  Candidates must have language proficiency in a recognized foreign language or complete language instruction to meet minimum proficiency guidelines (0-12 credits).
