Overview of the ProgramThe Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) M.A. program is a vital part of the Department of English Language and Literature. This program provides students with advanced instruction on subjects related to language and language teaching and it includes opportunities for students to teach in different contexts (include an on-site Intensive English program), to conduct their own empirical research and to assist faculty on research projects.TESOLThe TESOL M.A. program is a 33 credit program. In addition, there is a 6-hour written comprehensive examination which covers material studied throughout the program. Students may choose to write a thesis or to complete a graduate research paper. In doing their required coursework, students are completing all the necessary courses for the ESL K-12 endorsement which they can then add, if they so desire, to the necessary professional education courses for teacher licensure. Contact Person: Joyce Milambiling
