What will I learn?

The Graduate Certificate in TESOL, a 24-credit sequence, is a non-degree option within the full MATESOL Program. It is of particular interest for those who do not wish to pursue a full master’s program or who have special training objectives in mind. All eight Certificate courses may be applied to the MATESOL Program. Admission requirements are the same as for the MATESOL Program.
