The Rossier School of Education offers an interdisciplinary minor in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). This minor is targeted to those undergraduates who wish to gain expertise in the field of English as a Second Language (ESL) or English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teaching. The minor in TESOL also prepares students for short- and long-term careers in ESL and EFL teaching in both U.S. and international contexts.
While students can combine the TESOL courses with any major, the curriculum will particularly benefit students in linguistics, English, foreign languages, communication, international studies and other related fields. However, with its emphasis on language and culture, as well as its focus on effective teaching and inquiry, the minor in TESOL will complement almost any field of study.
