Program Overview

The advanced certificate in TESOL is intended to provide necessary coursework and preparation that allows a student to apply for NY state certification in this field. Students can transfer up to 12 credits from a master’s degree into this advanced certificate. The TESOL certificate program prepares NYS certified teachers to meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students in their classrooms by providing contemporary theories, research-based instructional strategies, teaching methods and techniques.

Through emphasis on both academic content learning and English language development of ELLs, this program is designed to prepare not only ESL teachers but general education teachers who would like to be better equipped for the diverse group of students in their classrooms. Teachers are given tools to assist their students in meeting the performance standards of Pre K-12 curricula in both public and private schools.

Courses address theory and practice of multicultural education, methods and materials of teaching English as a second language, teaching ELLs in content areas, second language acquisition and linguistics for TESOL. Carefully designed fieldwork experiences in which students can apply theoretical concepts to practice are included in the coursework.
