TESOL emphasizes teaching aspects of English in non-English speaking countries. Our TESOL program utilizes a variety of resources to prepare graduates including an English Language Transition program, ESL Tutoring Center, a Speakers' Corner and an accelerated bachelor’s to master’s degree program. We also coordinate placement of 60 native English speakers to South Korea’s Yeongjin University each year after graduation.
