TESOL Teaching Minor

Students interested in TESOL are often curious about other languages and cultures, and they want to help new English speakers in their language studies at home or abroad.

The TESOL Teaching minor is designed for elementary education majors or content area secondary education majors (i.e., math, social studies, English teaching).

The TESOL Teaching minor is a great way to add a K-12 ESL endorsement, and to learn about working with emergent bilingual students.
