TESOL Endorsement Program at KU
The TESOL Endorsement Program* at the University of Kansas School of Education prepares individuals for employment as TESOL teachers, as well as enhancing the skills of teachers in regular classrooms. Courses address language acquisition, developing an intercultural awareness, diagnosis and remediation of second language learners, and curriculum and instruction for second language students. Courses in this program are cross-listed and may be taken at the undergraduate or graduate level. Graduate level classes may be used to fulfill requirements for a Master of Science in Education (M.S.E.) or a Master of Arts (M.A.), Education degree.
Benefits of the program include:
- Licensure-focused Outcome - Graduates can apply for TESOL licensure endorsement from the state of Kansas.
- Program Reputation - KU’s TESOL Licensure Endorsement Program is offered through the KU School of Education, which was recently ranked 8th in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Public Education Schools.
- Nationally-accredited Program - The KU School of Education is accredited under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards through the CAEP Accreditation System.
*This academic program satisfies the requirements for the TESOL teaching licensure endorsement in the state of Kansas, but does not fulfill the requirements needed to complete a Master's degree.
