Degree Programs

TESOL CERTIFICATE  |  Credit Hours Required: 30

The TESOL Certificate consists of 30 credit hours of which 18 credit hours can be completed within one summer. The remaining courses can be taken during the fall or winter semesters, or if you have already completed comparable courses at another institution, these courses may be transferred in as credit. 


GRADUATE TESOL CERTIFICATE  |  Credit Hours Required: 18

An upgrade on the Undergraduate TESOL Certificate that provides enhancement of practical and experiential training and addresses the global need for highly-skilled teachers of English to speakers of other languages. The core TESOL courses are offered both in the regular academic year and in the special Summer TESOL Intensive. You can earn the graduate level certificate in TESOL with only six weeks of study on campus followed by practical coursework and one distance course in graduate level intercultural studies.
