This masters degree program leads to a K-12 teaching license for English as a Second Language and meets all the requirements and competencies issued by the Tennessee State Department of Education. Upon completion of all degree requirements, including student teaching, and all testing (PRAXIS) requirements, students may apply for initial teacher licensure in Tennessee. The program provides students with the specific professional education knowledge and skills necessary for teaching ESL. The program includes coursework in ESL education and teaching methods for diverse populations. Some courses have fieldwork in local school settings and community cultural institutions.

There are two different set of courses for this program. For students who have completed coursework in ESL, they should follow the degree sheet for students with an ESL background. For students who have not previously taken any ESL coursework they should follow the degree sheet for students without ESL background. Dr. Teresa Dalle can assist in determining which path is appropriate.
