Beginning classes focus on language (LNGE). You will hone your knowledge of English language structures and discover how language and culture influence each other in a variety of settings in the U.S. and around the world. After exploring how students learn a language, upper-level classes focus on English language teaching methodology and practice. You will also have opportunities to plan and implement language teaching activities.
A major in TESOL will allow you to enter a career teaching English to speakers of other languages in the US or abroad or work in related fields such as language testing and assessment, publishing, or non-profit organizations. Students might also choose to continue to one of many graduate programs, including the internationally recognized professional degree, the MA TESOL, which can lead to a career teaching in colleges and universities domestically and internationally.
