Program Description

The Master of Education in English Language Learning is a unique program that will enable you to earn the master's and teaching licensure in English as a Second Language. The program will provide you with core coursework in initial licensure or advanced educational coursework and a specific and targeted curriculum in teaching English language acquisition. The program examines the theory and practice of English language instruction for non-native speakers with a particular focus on the importance of culture and environment for this fast-growing population.
