About this course

Responding to a critical community need, Graduate and Professional Studies at McDaniel College created the master's program for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The Maryland Higher Education Commission approved the program in 2007.

Although the TESOL Masters degree program is designed to promote excellence in teaching speakers of other languages, this program does not lead to an intitial PreK-12 teacher ceritfication. The program places a strong emphasis on the development of: professionalism in language education; individual language rights; accessible, high quality education; collaboration in a global community; interaction of research and reflective practice for educational improvement; respect for diversity and multiculturalism; and promotion of professional development and exchange for educators. This program is closely aligned with the professional standards established by Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages [TESOL]/National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education [NCATE].
