Our M.S.Ed. program offers a concentration in ENL/ESL that provides coursework for elementary school teachers seeking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of this growing and vitally important field.

The concentration consists of 30 hours of coursework that focuses on both technical aspects of ENL/ESL instruction and wider cultural issues that offer context for understanding the classroom environment. In addition, field experience will acquaint students with the realities of this rewarding work.

The certificate meets required accreditation outcomes, prepares candidates with required research skills, guarantees that curriculum needs are met and adds the recognition of a concentration in ENL/ESL to the M.S.Ed. degree.
