Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
This Certificate equips those who wish to meet the large and growing need in North America and around the world for teachers of English to speakers of other languages. A strong academic foundation in theory and practice produces effective classroom instructors and curriculum and materials developers.
The Certificate can be completed in one year of full-time study. Those who hold appropriate Bible College credits can complete the Certificate in the month of June or August each year, or by taking the core of TESOL courses during the regular school year. The Certificate may be obtained at the undergraduate or graduate level.
Note: Those who have already completed an undergraduate degree may pursue a Master of Arts in Global Studies or an M.A. in Educational Studies with a TESOL major, including the Certificate requirements and an additional 30 hours of seminary credit. Non-native speakers of English must demonstrate an adequate proficiency in English in order to enter the program (520 TOEFL P.P.T./ 190 C.B.T equivalent; the requirements for the intensive summer program are 600 TOEFL P.B.T./ 250 C.B.T. equivalent).
