This is a carefully designed distance education program based upon our 30+ years of experience in operating a successful TESL certificate program on campus.
This is a unique program that equips students with both the
linguistic tools and the pedagogical tools to teach adults ESL, stressing the relationship between theory and practice. The courses allow both asynchronous and synchronous types of instruction. Students work individually and in groups, and they develop valuable associations with various ESL teaching institutes.
All courses are internationally accredited and can be used toward completing Mason’s face-to-face
MA in English with a concentration in Linguistics. Our TESL certificate is recognized to allow students to teach ESL nationally and internationally in adult continuing education and community college environments.
This certificate program is available fully online and may be pursued on a part-time or full-time basis. Students can earn the TESL certificate in as little as two semesters!
