The graduate programs in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) are designed to enhance knowledge, skills, and effectiveness of teachers, researchers, and administrators in the profession. These programs attract an international student body and combine rigorous academic standards with an appropriate balance between theory and practice.
It is desirable that applicants for the Master of Arts degree in TESOL have teaching experience prior to admission into the program; they may also acquire this experience concurrent with the program.
Applicants who are not native speakers of English will be required to demonstrate on the TOEFL with TWE that their command of English is adequate for study in the program.
