Enhance Your Degree Through the TESOL Certificate Program or Minor at BSU
Did you know that nearly one in 10 students in grades K–12 learn English alongside other subjects? According to data from the U.S. Department of Education, 9.6% of students are English learners.
This number is expected to grow, so the need for educators who are experienced at teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) or teaching English as a foreign language in another country (TEFL) will increase, too.
You don’t need a bachelor’s degree in TESOL to effectively work with English language learners. If you’d like to major in another subject area but are interested in TEFL or TESOL certification, Bridgewater offers two pathways to teaching other language speakers: Choose the TESOL certificate program or a minor in teaching English as a second language.
Through our Department of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), you’ll find the best TESOL certification and minor programs to help meet your goals, whether you’d like to teach English as a second/foreign language in schools, community centers or other organizations in the United States or abroad.
