English as a Second Language, Certificate of Graduate Study

The Certificate of Graduate Study in English as a Second Language is designed to accommodate teachers, educational technicians, and other holders of baccalaureate degrees who do not want to complete all of the requirements for a master’s degree but who wish to obtain foundational knowledge in English language learning. Students who complete the certificate program receive official transcript recognition of their work and a certificate from the Literacy, Language, and Culture programs. Certificate completers are able to plan effective instruction for English language learners and may earn state endorsement in ESL if other requirements are met (hold provisional or professional teaching license).
