ESOL – English as Second Language Program
English Speakers of Other Language
This Course of Study (equal to a year of preparation) is designed for those seeking an endorsement in English for Speakers of Other Languages. It may serve in place of a minor in the Multidisciplinary Studies degree but will NOT be transcripted as a minor. Candidates may add this endorsement to a license by completing the course of study, including 90 clock hours of practicum, and obtaining a passing score on NES ESOL.
An ESOL course of study is also available at the graduate level. The graduate-level courses are offered online. The purpose of the graduate ESOL course of study is to provide licensed teachers with additional preparation in order to work as ESOL teachers, ESOL specialists or ESOL coaches.
When a candidate has completed the course of study and has obtained a passing score on the appropriate NES ESOL test, the licensure officer at EOU will, at the candidate’s request, make a recommendation to TSPC for an ESOL Endorsement to be added to the candidate’s teaching license.
ESOL Undergraduate Certificate Program
This program (equal to a year of preparation) is designed for those seeking a certificate in English for Speakers of Other Languages. Candidates may be awarded this certificate by completing the course of study and 90 clock hours of practicum. The objective is to provide an opportunity for students to receive the coursework required to teach English for Speakers of Other Languages outside of the public school setting. Such settings may include community programs and language programs offered outside of the United States.
