ESOL Endorsement

Return to: 4170 Department of Middle and Secondary Education  

The Department of Middle and Secondary Education of the College of Education and Human Development and the Department of Applied Linguistics and English as a Second Language of the College of Arts and Sciences offer graduate courses in bilingual/English as a second language to give teachers additional training to work with non-English speaking or limited English speaking students at the early childhood, middle childhood, and secondary school levels.

Successful completion of the following coursework and completion of a portfolio demonstrating competencies established for ESOL teachers by TESOL results in candidates being endorsed to teach ESOL in grades P-12. Students must be admitted as graduate students to the College of Education and Human Development. See the program description for the M.Ed. Literacy Education for application of TSLE courses to a degree program. Students who do not hold an initial certification in a teaching field may apply to the M.A.T. English to Speakers of Other Languages Education to receive initial certification in ESOL and a reading endorsement.
