Master of Arts in TESOL Program Curriculum
Graduate students enrolled in the master of arts degree program will complete coursework in the School of Education as well as the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) and potentially other departments at KU. Students will complete coursework in areas such as linguistics, anthropology and sociology, for example. This provides the student an opportunity to gain advanced knowledge in education as well as TESOL.
Upon admission, graduate students will be assigned an advisor who is a faculty member in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching. Students should plan to meet with their advisor prior to enrolling in their first semester of study, and prior to every semester thereafter, until all degree requirements are fulfilled.
