This graduate-level program prepares teachers to work with students who are learning English as a second language. This 16 credit hour program meets the requirements established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to be certified as a program specialist for teaching English as a second language.
The final course will include a 40 hour supervised practicum experience where the student will be providing instruction to English language learners. Upon completion of the five courses, students who have teacher certification may apply to PDE for the program specialist certificate.
Opportunities to extend the certification into a master's degree are being created. Contact Dr. Christopher Keyes email@example.com for more information and for questions.
