ESOL Program for Certified Teachers
The ESOL post-master’s certification program is designed for current teachers looking to add to their certification and teach English to speakers of other languages. This high-need certification is attainable in only 15 credits of coursework in an accessible evening and hybrid format.
English language learners (ELLs) currently account for nearly 10 percent of all students nationwide and is the most rapidly growing subgroup of public school students across the United States. This increasing number of children living in non-English-speaking households creates a demand for English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) public school teachers. New York State especially, is seeing a quickly rising demand for ESOL K-12 teachers. As part of this program, students will engage in ESOL-focused coursework offered by ESOL experts. The four courses required are offered over two semesters (evening & online), so the program can be completed efficiently.
