Program Information

Degree Offered

Graduate Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

Format: Online

Program Description:

Penn State's online TESOL certificate program provides graduate-level courses designed for candidates seeking entry-level English language teaching credentials. All 4 courses (12 credits) are delivered entirely online to give you maximum convenience and flexibility around your busy schedule, and the courses are taught by the same faculty who teach in our resident Master of Arts in TESL (MA TESL) program at University Park.
If you are interested in teaching English in post-secondary or adult English language programs in the United States or abroad, you'll need entry-level credentials from a well-known North American university respected throughout the world.
All 12 graduate credits in the online TESOL certificate can be transferred in to the MA TESL program at Penn State. If you choose to enter the master's degree program, you will only have 2-3 semesters of on-campus learning.


Penn State is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, one of six regional higher education accreditation bodies for the United States.
