TESOL Advanced Entry Curriculum
This 30-unit MATESOL degree can be completed in three academic semesters: with a typical course load of 12-13 units in each of the first two semesters and 5-7 units in the final semester.
Upon meeting with our Academic Advisor, a course sequence which complements your previous coursework will be determined. In order to be considered, the previous coursework must have been completed within the past five years with a grade of B (3.0) or higher.
