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.
