The Master and Certificate of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) are practitioner-oriented programs based on principles of global citizenship, multilingualism, and pluralism.

Program Details

The Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Others Languages (TESOL) program, housed in the International and Multicultural Education Department, is dedicated to understanding formal and informal education within its sociocultural, linguistic, and political contexts around the world. The program critically addresses the role of language in schools and communities in the United States and internationally.

MA TESOL Course Details

The MA TESOL is a practitioner-oriented degree providing a comprehensive coverage of linguistic theory and practical application. Students also learn to examine the intersections of language, culture, power, and inequality. Our program equips students with the knowledge and strategies they need to be highly effective social justice language teachers, leaders, and practitioners across various learning contexts in the U.S. and abroad.

Program Learning Outcomes

 The TESOL program is designed to enable students, upon graduation, to:

  • Understand the structure of the English language (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse)
  • Demonstrate an understanding of language variation and cross-linguistic differences
  • Knowledge of first and second language development and the development of bilingualism/multilingualism
  • Use theory as a lens for thinking critically about social inequities in local/global contexts.
  • Be a knowledgeable consumer of educational research
  • Be skillful in a wide range of instructional materials, approaches, and methods for learners at different stages of development and from differing cultural and linguistic backgrounds
  • Use a wide range of assessment tools for including informal/formal, individual/group, formative/summative instruments
  • Design, implement, and assess K-12, post-secondary, community programs focused on multicultural language/literacy education in English
