Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)
The Professional TESOL Certificate
The stand-alone TESOL 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 do the certificate in one intensive semester.
The stand-alone TESOL Certificate consists of the following selected TESOL courses:
Language Analysis, 3 credits
Principles and Practices, 3 credits
