Language Teaching Specializations
Specializations are available both to current MATESOL or MATFL students and to language teaching professionals seeking additional training.
Language Program Administration (LPA)
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. The LPA specialization is not offered by any other TESOL program in the US.
Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL)
The Computer-Assisted Language Learning specialization enables graduates to manage and develop curriculum for language learning programs utilizing computer technology. It includes courses in computer-assisted instruction and assessment, language software evaluation, distance learning and delivery, and use of the Internet and other technological resources for language teaching.
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or Teaching a Foreign Language (TFL)
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 TFL or TESOL to complement their degree.
