View Current Catalog

The TESOL (Teaching English To Speakers of Other Languages) endorsement prepares teachers to teach English to speakers of other languages in multi-age classrooms in the United States and overseas. Students interested in the TESOL endorsement must possess or be working toward the completion degree and licensure requirements. Students who complete the TESOL endorsement program will automatically receive the minor and are eligible to receive an institution-endorsed certificate. In order to receive the certificate, a student must earn a 3.0 average for the courses of the minor. Non-native speakers of English must achieve a TOEFL score of 600 or above on the paper exam or 250 on the computer exam and a score of 55 or above on the Test of Spoken English or have department approval in order to qualify for admission.
