The Masters Program in TESOL/Bilingual Education is nationally and internationally known quality in the following areas:
All core classes are taught by highly qualified and experienced professors holding no less than a doctoral degree.
Over 90% of our courses are taught by full-time University of Findlay professors. Your courses will not be taught by students pursuing higher degrees.
Our professors working for the TESOL/Bilingual program are bilingual and have global experience. However, students need not speak another language to be successful in this program.
The curriculum was built with only the professional needs of ESL/bilingual teachers in mind. There are no extra courses from other departments.
Students within the program come from a variety of backgrounds, both domestic and international.
Personalized attention for our students is our trademark. This can be seen all the way from our advising of students to our one-on-one instruction in the endorsement exit portfolio and in the MA thesis projects.
We provide unique volunteer experiences within our local school systems to supplement our master level in-class training.
Many of our graduates go on to study at the doctoral level or find employment in both public and private schools located domestically and internationally.
