Program Description:

The Master of Arts degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (MA-TESL) is designed to prepare students for careers in teaching English as an additional language in programs traditionally known as English as a second or foreign language (ESL/EFL). Coursework is appropriate for those interested in teaching ESL/EFL to children or adults in the United States and/or international settings. The MA-TESL also prepares students for advanced study in applied linguistics.
