The TESOL majors, minors, and graduate programs in the English Department are designed for both native and nonnative speakers of English. Graduates in these programs are prepared for employment in teaching English to speakers of other languages in the United States and in other countries. Students take courses in language acquisition, theory and practice of teaching English as a second or foreign language, pedagogical grammar, linguistics, and cultural studies. Some of these programs enable students to acquire certification in teaching English as a second language in grades K-12.
