EFL/ESL Teaching

Graduate Certificate

Advancements in technology, combined with globalization of business and communication, continue to broaden the spectrum of environments where teachers skilled in English as a foreign language (EFL) or English as a second language (ESL) are needed.

The EFL/ESL Teaching Program is designed for new or experienced teachers to develop and enhance expertise in teaching English as a foreign or second language.

As a student in the program, you complete 12 credit hours of graduate course work. You take required courses covering approaches to instruction and assessment, language foundations, and teaching English in global contexts. You also complete electives, including a course on computer-assisted language learning and a practicum in language education.
