TESOL, K-12 Certification
Program Coordinator: James Whiting, PhD
Students who complete this program fulfill all of the requirements for the New Hampshire Department of Education K-12 certification to teach English language learners. The program consists of seven classes plus a classroom-based field experience.
The program’s focus is experiential and hands-on, with the emphasis on the application of what is learned in classes to the world at large. Classes blend theory and practice, and they provide a complete foundation in language teaching methodologies, language assessment, literacy, language acquisition, and linguistics for language teachers.
Classes are offered throughout the year in online, in-person and blended (online and in-person) formats. The in-person and blended classes are offered in the evenings and on weekends. Students may take classes on a part-time basis.
