Prerequisite Coursework

The ideal candidate for this advanced-entry program has already completed coursework toward a TESOL specialization or degree.

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. Assuming previous TESOL coursework has included language pedagogy and introduction to linguistics, an advanced entry program might include:

First Semester

Second Semester

Third Semester
