Program description

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL, MAT)

Make a difference in young lives by using your degree to teach and inspire future generations. Our graduates consistently have a success rate exceeding 90 percent on the rigorous New York State Teacher Certification Examinations and a job placement rate of 100 percent (2016-2018). Students graduate with confidence and hands-on experience in the classroom, placing them among the most qualified and sought-after teachers in the field.

The Clarkson online Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MAT ESOL) program provides candidates with a full 39-credit master’s degree in the discipline. Coursework is offered completely online to accommodate busy schedules. This degree was created for aspiring teachers who want to work with English language learners. Candidates who complete this degree successfully will receive Clarkson’s endorsement of the candidate for initial/professional pre-K-12 certification in TESOL.

For teachers already practicing in the classroom who are interested in acquiring a second certification, we also offer a 16-credit online certificate of advanced study (CAS) in TESOL pathway. This certificate will provide added skills and value to your overall teaching portfolio, ensuring more flexibility and security in the job market and allowing schools to forgo putting a second teacher in a classroom with English language learners. Candidates who complete this certificate successfully will receive Clarkson’s endorsement of the candidate for initial certification in TESOL.

Continuing studies

New York state needs teachers certified to teach ESOL. With the extraordinary growth of English language learning students, teaching positions in this area are going unfilled because schools cannot find certified teachers to hire. In the current environment, a rewarding teaching position in the field of TESOL is almost guaranteed.
