Description

The concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program has a double emphasis:

  1. Theoretical foundations and contemporary research in linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics (second-language acquisition) and related fields.
  2. Classroom teaching methodology suitable for adult second-language learners.

Because our alumni go into so many teaching situations, the M.A. TESOL program does not attempt to train for one specific type of locale; instead, we provide general preparation for the teaching of adult learners in a variety of pedagogical settings.
