Program Description:

The demand for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) has markedly increased as changing national systems and global concerns have created an interdependent world. American University's MA in TESOL is distinctive in its focus on actual experiential learning: students plan lessons, observe classes, and design tests for English language classes. Faculty draw on their extensive teaching experience, research, and interaction with other cultures to provide pragmatic lessons and advice. This flexible program allows for full-time or part-time attendance, with most courses offered at convenient times in the evening. Courses are also offered during the AU Summer TESOL Institute
