M.A. in Education with Teaching ESL Emphasis
Pepperdine introduces a new one-year master’s program strand, which is launching in the fall 2011 at the Irvine Graduate Campus.
This new program strand, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), is designed to support educators seeking to teach English as an additional language to students from kindergarten to the university level, both in the USA and beyond.
Students enrolled in the TESOL strand will extend and deepen their professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions as reflective scholar-practitioners. The program is designed for: a) local candidates intending to specialize in teaching English Learners; and b) international candidates wishing to study the teaching of English. The program is offered as one-year cohort model, which offers a collegiate, tightly-knit, team environment for students to participate in shared learning, and professional network building.
All classes are aligned with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programs (2008).
