As English has become the world’s premier international language, English teachers are in demand all over the world. This five-course graduate certificate in Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language provides graduate-level credit and training in how and what to teach, including skill areas such as grammar, culture and teaching with technology. 

Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) is a rich experience that can open doors around the world, and individuals with experience living and working a year or two abroad have a competitive edge in any field. The five-course graduate certificate is completed online over five 7-week sessions, one course at a time. Designed by leaders in the field, the courses include TEFL Methods, Curriculum/Materials Development and Assessment, Linguistics and Pedagogical Grammar, Culture for TEFL, and Technology-Enhanced English Language Teaching. These courses provide a foundation that, combined with a bachelor’s degree, can help secure entry-level TEFL positions around the world. The courses also provide graduate-level credit, meaning they complement a related master’s degree or can be applied later to a full MA in TEFL.
