This certificate prepares educators for both domestic and international teaching assignments working with culturally and linguistically-diverse learners. It provides courses for licensed teachers to earn an add-on endorsement in English as a second language (ESL) PK-12, also known as English for speakers of other languages (ESOL). Candidates whose first language is not English may be required to pass an oral and written proficiency assessment in English to meet state licensure requirements and national professional standards.
The graduate certificate may be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis.
