M.S.Ed. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL, K-12) Long Island University Brooklyn Campus



Course info


The 42-credit M.S.Ed. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL, K-12) is for students without prior certification and leads to the degree of Master of Science in Education and eligibility for initial NYS Certification in TESOL, preparing students to teach English to speakers of other languages in K through 12 classrooms. There is also a 37-credit M.S.Ed. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL, K-12) for students who already have certification in another area.

Students graduating from this program are eligible for teaching certification once they have passed all required portions of the New York State Teacher Certification Exam (NYSTCE). Students may also apply for Internship Certification after completing the first 21 credits. Internship Certification permits students to begin teaching while they complete their degrees.

In order to meet the New York State Education Department's licensing requirements, students must have taken as part of their general education course work 12 semester hours or the equivalent of study of a language other than English. If this requirement is not met on admission to the program, it can be met concurrent to the student's completing program requirements.

Students with prior initial certification in another area will, upon completing this program, also be eligible for professional certification in their original certification area. A 40-credit non-certification track is available for students who are not interested in or who do not qualify for certification.

Career Opportunities: In the New York Metropolitan area, the New York City Department of Education is the primary employer of teachers. The highest need areas in middle and high schools are Special Education and English as a Second Language. Graduates of the School of Education are also employed in a range of educational settings, including pre-schools, private, independent and charter schools, private tutorial companies and after-school and literacy programs. Educators are also sought at non-profit organizations, educational media, such as in publishing and television development, curriculum development, market research, and human resources, notably the training function.
