Program Description:

The number of nonnative students in the K-12 setting in the state of Florida as well as in most states is rapidly increasing. These learners represent an array of different languages and cultural backgrounds. With this increase in nonnative students as well as first language background comes an increase in the demand for qualified teachers who have the necessary knowledge and skills to work with ESOL students.

In order to enroll in graduate classes, students must have obtained a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited institution or from a recognized foreign institution.
