Certificate in Teaching English Learners

As the fastest-growing student population, English learners need relevant curriculum and appropriate instruction. The online Certificate in Teaching English Learners program prepares you to face the challenges and opportunities of teaching these students by enhancing your knowledge of language development, cultural factors, ethics and linguistic diversity issues.

This certificate is approved by the Indiana Department of Education for adding the English Learners content area to your existing Indiana teaching license. The program is approved by the Ohio Department of Higher Education as leading to the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) K-12 endorsement.
