Program Description:

One of the most significant educational challenges that non-native speakers face is learning English. Campbellsville University’s online TESOL master’s degree will provide you with the skills needed to teach the English language to non-native speakers within the United States and abroad. The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) master’s degree program equips you with the tools to teach English as a second language (ESL) to university students in the U.S. and English as a foreign language (EFL) for elementary, secondary and university students internationally. Additionally, you will have the flexibility and convenience of a fully online format and learn from faculty members who have real-world experience.

The program presents an introduction to basic linguistic concepts and vocabulary, examines how culture and language are connected and influence each other and how to introduce students to speech sounds. You will also cover topics such as second language acquisition and materials and methods related to speaking, listening, pronunciation, reading, writing and grammar. A practicum course provides practical experience related to teaching English, and you will work independently with guidance from a TESOL faculty member to write a research paper on the topic of your choice. Additionally, a thesis option is available.

Campbellsville University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Our online TESOL master’s program is also accredited by NCATE, the National Council for the Accreditation for Teacher Education.
