English to Speakers of other Languages (ESOL) Non-Degree Endorsement
Successful completion of the ESOL endorsement coursework and completion of a portfolio demonstrating competencies established for ESOL teachers by TESOL qualifies a person for the bachelor’s, master’s, or specialist level endorsement, depending upon the student’s current level of certification. The program presupposes certification at least at the bachelor’s level. Students seeking only the ESOL endorsement must be admitted to the Graduate program in the College of Education & Human Development as a non-degree student. (See the program description for the M.Ed. with a major in Reading, Language, and Literacy Education for application of TSLE courses to a degree program. Students who do not hold an initial certification in a teaching field may apply to the M.A.T. in Reading, Language, and Literacy Education to receive initial certification in ESOL and a reading endorsement.)
