MASTER OF SCIENCE IN TEACHING ENGLISH TO SPEAKERS OF OTHER
LANGUAGES (TESOL)
The Master of Science in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with a concentration in Exceptional Student Education is designed for students who wish to obtain a State of Florida teaching certification in the area of English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). The purpose of the program is to prepare culturally sensitive educators to respond to the unique language needs of children with limited English proficiency in grades K – 12.

The program consists of 30 credits of coursework. CAU’s unique program design integrates into the field of language acquisition and education the overall understanding of student behavior and sensitivity towards culturally diverse populations. A highlight of the program is the completion of a Graduate Portfolio that will assess student knowledge within the context of TESOL education in the following areas: instructional strategies, language education methodologies, curriculum development, ESOL educational technology, remediation of communication disorders and assessment.
