Northwest University’s TESOL Certificate program provides students with training to Teach English to Speakers of Other Languages.

TESOL Certificates are designed to:

  • serve as a Subject Area Endorsement in the Education program of 20 semester credits;
  • augment the Intercultural Studies program by providing students from other schools and colleges with skills that can serve as a bridge to witnessing; and
  • meet the requirements for the concentrations in the Interdisciplinary Studies major.

A TESOL Certificate is given by the University to students who complete the introductory program in TEOSL. Students who wish to prepare as tutors and volunteers to teach basic oral English will benefit from this certification. This basic program is also valuable for those who are considering a career in TESOL.
