San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
The University of San Francisco’s Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA TESOL) is now being offered as an online program, in addition to the face-to-face program, which has been offered since 1975. Adapted from its campus counterpart, this new online MA TESOL program is now accepting applications for the Spring 2013 semester.
The online MA TESOL program combines a comprehensive coverage of linguistic theory with practical application, providing students with the knowledge and strategies they need to be highly effective teachers for students of other languages in the US and abroad. The concentration in Digital Media and Learning provides students with the skills to integrate technology-enhanced learning into their instructional practice and to make real world connections for the students they teach.
Designed as a flexible online educational solution for working professionals, the MA TESOL program provides students with a solid theoretical understanding of skills that can be put into practice immediately. Students examine and improve their own teaching practice as a result of the interactions with peers and faculty throughout the program.
The MA TESOL curriculum consists of 11 courses including a research project taken in the final semester. The 33 credit hour program can be completed in five semesters and features convenient start times during the fall, spring and summer terms.
