Master of Science in TESOL
The Master of Science in TESOL Track is designed to provide specialized training and content knowledge for teachers of all levels of ESOL, K through 12, adult education, community college education and higher education. The MS in TESOL consists of 30 credits, six 3-credit TESOL courses and four professional courses. This degree provides foundation in ESOL methodology, curriculum design, assessment, linguistics, and cross-cultural communication. These courses are designed to prepare individuals to work with limited English speakers in a variety of settings. Five of the TESOL courses satisfy Florida’s ESOL Endorsement for Category 1 teachers (Elementary and Secondary English) and one course satisfies Florida’s ESOL requirement for Category 2 teachers and administrators.
The capstone course (EDU 517) is used for program level assessment and to assess a candidate's proficiency in the five learning outcomes covered in the program. This course is under consideration as a global learning course with chances to gain overseas teaching experiences.
