English as a Second Language (ESL) Endorsement

This certificate is offered in conjunction with the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) MA program. Courses are designed using the Quality Matters set of professional standards based upon research, best practices and national standards for course design.

In addition to coursework, ESL students must have a minimum of 12 hours of supervised teaching at both the K–6 and 7–12 endorsement levels, at lease one of which must include ESL.
