Graduate Program in TESOL

The Department of Education offers programs leading to the Master of Science in Education (MSEd) in Childhood Education, Adolescence Education, Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages, Special Education Childhood (1-6), Special Education Adolescence Generalist (7-12), the Post-Master’s Advanced Certificate for Leadership in Education and the Post-Master's Advanced Certificate for Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages.

2) The School of Education Director of Program Administration.

Education Faculty Advisor:

  • Advises students about professional aspirations, career choices, intellectual growth, and unique opportunities.
  • Advises students about Education course content, academic and professional relationships, and other academic issues that arise.
  • Advises students who are in academic difficulty (i.e., whose GPAs have fallen below minimum standards) in their Education courses.
  • Advise students who seek an academic waiver for an Education requirement of any kind.
