Cultural & Linguistic Diversity: TESOL or Bilingual Studies

TESOL, Bilingual studies programs

The increasing number of persons of limited English proficiency demands teachers, counselors, administrators, and social workers who are well-prepared. The Master of Arts Program in Cultural and Linguistic Diversity responds to a genuine need and offers a consistent vision of the United States as a multicultural nation whose rapidly changing population requires competently prepared personnel.

This program will prepare you to develop contemporary strategies, models, and programs in school and community settings and to appreciate the challenges and conflicts involved in developing interdependence within multicultural diversity. Two certificate programs provide the basic competencies if you are interested in working with either English language learners at the K-12 level or other populations, either in the U.S. or abroad.
