The English Language Teaching Program has two tracks: a dual-licensure program intended for those working towards an education major and a TESOL program for those not intending to receive a teaching license but who wish to have the skills to teach English in various settings overseas or domestically. The core of this program provides a strong foundation for teaching English as a second or foreign language and develops a strong sense of cultural competency. Teachers are empowered to build on students’ wealth of knowledge in their heritage languages and cultures, creating diverse learning experiences for all learners.
