Language Teaching Specializations are available to Master's degree students and as certificates to language teaching professionals seeking additional training.

Language Program Administration (LPA)

Our LPA specialization is not offered by any other TESOL program in the US.

The Language Program Administration specialization prepares students to administer language programs or schools. It includes courses in teacher education and supervision, budgeting, accounting, and marketing. 

Language Teaching (TESOL or TFL)

The 17-credit specialization in the following areas is for those who do not require a master's degree and wish to focus on more practical courses.

Students who complete an MA in TESOL or TFL at the Monterey Institute may elect to enroll for an additional semester to complete a supplemental 14-credit specialization in either TESOL or TFL to complement their degree.
