Teaching Foreign Languages (TFL)

The Professional TFL Certificate

The stand-alone Teaching Foreign Languages (TFL) certificate consists of 17 graduate credits. As the coursework is quite rigorous, we often recommend that the certificate be completed over two semesters (fall and spring), although it is possible to earn the certificate in an intensive semester of study.

The stand-alone TFL Certificate consists of the following TFL courses:

  • Language Analysis, 3 credits

Opening Paragraph

The Language Program Administration (LPA) program can be completed as a stand-alone certificate or as a specialization in specific Master's degree programs.

Language Program Administration (LPA)

MIIS students enrolled in the MATESOL, MATFL, or IEM programs have the opportunity to specialize in Language Program Administration. Students in other programs with extensive language teaching experience or language education coursework may also be eligible. To work successfully as a language program administrator you will need professional skills such as developing budgets and monitoring expenses, training teachers and aides, and evaluating program effectiveness.
