Program Overview: 

Immaculata's 18-credit TESOL certificate is ideal for teachers with little or no English as a second language (ESL) teaching experience, or teachers who plan to live abroad. Whether you are a new or experienced teacher, you may enhance your credentials through this program.  

Credits earned in this certificate program can be applied later to the M.A. in Cultural and Linguistic Diversity with a concentration in TESOL.
