English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Want to make a difference in the world? If so, you can start by teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
The ESOL program is designed for licensed teachers who teach or would like to teach English to speakers of other languages.
The ESOL program is 20 credits. Courses are offered online during the school year and face to face in the summers. The Praxis exam for ESOL must be passed in order to obtain the endorsement recommendation.
The final course in the ESOL program is the Practicum/Portfolio course. This course allows students to apply the skills and knowledge learned throughout the program.
