TESOL Student Learning Outcomes
Loyola HallRoom 407(206) firstname.lastname@example.org
The mission of the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program is “to prepare ethical and reflective TESOL professionals for service in diverse communities." The TESOL program prepares graduates to teach persons with varying instructional needs who are interested in acquiring proficiency in English as their second language, either in the United States or abroad. This program does not lead to the state-issued teaching certificate required to teach in the K-12 system in the U.S.
The program offers a Master of Arts degree, a Master of Education degree, or a Post-master’s certificate in TESOL. All three options emphasize proficient teaching. Courses combine course planning and instructional practice with theoretical coursework in language acquisition and linguistic theory, supplemented by an internship and fieldwork. The program also places emphasis on the value of continued involvement in professional organizations.
There are many benefits to enrolling in the TESOL program:
Several classes are held offsite at the affiliated non-profit School of Teaching English as a Second Language (S-TESL).
Students in the TESOL program at SU may take up to 25% of their coursework off campus at the School of TESL, located in North Seattle. The Director of the School of TESL is Bernice Ege-Zavala, who works closely with the College of Education Associate Dean, SusanEllen Bacon.
For more information, please take a look at our TESOL Brochure.
