The certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is intended for those who work in international settings. This certificate provides content and application to foster the skills needed for activities such as international missions work and teaching English as a second or foreign language, whether in the US or overseas. Through this certification, students will develop a sensitivity to other cultures encountered both domestically and internationally. Those completing the five courses in this program will receive a TESOL certificate.

Students who have earned the TESOL certificate may apply this coursework to one of two CCU master's degree programs, either the program or program with an emphasis in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education.
