The Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) provides students a strong foundation in language acquisition, use, and pedagogy.
We offer our students a strong foundation in theory with numerous opportunities for gaining practical teaching experience and developing individual research agendas.
Our program supports study abroad opportunities with a focus on service learning in numerous countries, including Spain, Mexico, and China.
Because UCF offers a PhD in Education with a specialty in TESOL, students can begin their TESOL career at the undergraduate level and continue to a terminal degree at the doctoral level here on campus. We also offer an undergraduate TEFL Certificate, a graduate TEFL Certificate, and the Florida ESOL Endorsement.
Our professors have diverse research interests and thrive on working with students to develop their professionalism in the field. Current research trends in the department include vocabulary, assessment, community engagement, Russian ESOL, and sociolinguistics.
This graduate program is proud to partner with the Peace Corps Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program to provide returning volunteers an opportunity to expand their education.
