MAT – TESOL Program Overview

English-language specialists work in a range of settings and may work with students as young as kindergarteners to senior citizens. With a curriculum focused on TESOL pedagogy, this program prepares educators to teach non-native English speakers in culturally responsive learning settings. Students explore the foundations of English-language teaching and put theory into practice with a field experience in a TESOL setting.

“I have enjoyed teaching for a number of years now, but without having formal instruction in education or TESOL, I was always unsure if I was going about it correctly. Now, with my newly earned assuredness in methods and pedagogy, I continue to enjoy my time spent with the students — especially when I can help them fill in the gaps of knowledge preventing them from reaching their academic potential.”

— Jae Schock, Master of Arts in Teaching – TESOL Graduate
