Description of Program

The Master of Education degree with a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) provides advanced preparation to support and advocate for multilingual learners and their families in a variety of settings. The program will help education professionals, who have gained a teaching license in another area, earn their endorsement in preK-12 English as a Second Language (ESL). This master’s degree will add to their understanding of supporting multilingual learners and provide the knowledge base to take an ESOL Praxis exam, so they can add another endorsement. In addition, this degree targets other professionals who desire to gain expertise and knowledge in working with multilingual learners and their families in different contexts. Finally, this program may enable candidates to teach English as a foreign language in other countries.

No knowledge of a foreign language is required.
