M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

Teacher and Student in ClassroomImagine being in a room where everyone is speaking a language completely unfamiliar to you. Many students in our local schools face this problem on a daily basis. LIU Post's Master of Arts program in TESOL program prepares you to help children in all grades to overcome language barriers and learn how to speak the English language effectively. You will develop a greater awareness of the special needs of children in multilingual/multicultural school districts. This highly specialized program - which prepares you for New York State certification - also provides advanced training for experienced TESOL teachers, supervisors and administrators.

The program is 39 to 42 credits depending on course selection and the culminating experience.
