TESOL Graduate Certification @ KU Online

For non-native speakers, learning English can often be a difficult and frustrating process, but it doesn't have to be. A caring, compassionate and committed educator with the right teaching techniques, a far-reaching cultural awareness, and a thorough understanding of pedagogical theories and best practices can make all the difference in a student's ability to learn the English language and their life overall.

Now, the online Graduate Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at the University of Kansas helps to prepare educators to clear the language barrier for their students. Our graduate certificate helps students from many culturally diverse backgrounds to succeed in early childhood, K-12 or adult education classrooms. Disclosure information about the U.S. Department of Education Gainful Employment Program can be seen here.

Note: This program does not provide instruction in speaking English. It prepares educators to teach English to speakers of other languages and is not an English language program for second or other language learners.

No program can guarantee licensure. It is each student’s responsibility to determine the licensure requirements in his or her state and to apply for the licenses or endorsements necessary to his or her career goals. Our department staff and Licensure Officer can provide individual support during the application process to help you understand your state’s requirements.
