TESOL

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

The Adult/University-Level TESOL certificates are designed to meet the needs of students who wish to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) to adults or university-level students abroad.

The Undergraduate Certificate program is open to undergraduates with at least junior standing, to post-baccalaureate special students, and to those who do not plan to pursue a college or university degree (non-degree students) but who have a strong interest in this subject. Non-degree students must meet regular University admission requirements.

Graduate students or post-baccalaureate non-degree students should pursue instead the “Adult/University-Level TESOL Graduate Certificate.” Training in the graduate certificate program is more rigorous, and some credits earned can be transferred to the Linguistics Department MA program.
