Expanding its passion for online learning, American University’s College of Arts and Sciences now offers an online Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (MA in TEFL). This flexible program, planned for January 2014, suits the needs of students worldwide who are seeking the expertise and training necessary to teach English internationally.
American University’s MA in TEFL is built on the school’s renowned Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program. An accelerated program, it consists of 11 eight-week sessions and leverages state-of-the-art online theoretical instruction along with hours of hands-on experience teaching English as a foreign language. Upon completion of the program, graduates are primed to find and land one of the many global teaching, administrative or curriculum development positions in secondary schools, universities and private language schools worldwide.
“Our globally diverse student population is one of the reasons we created the Master of Teaching English as a Foreign Language,” said Polina Vinogradova, Director of the TESOL Program at American University. “We also understand that the traditional classroom is steadily shifting to hybrid, flipped or online classes, making the launch of this online master’s degree program very exciting for the University.”
The higher education landscape is very competitive and American University offers online learning to meet the needs of today’s students. Online courses are available in the various schools and colleges on campus at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Courses are taught by the same faculty teaching on campus and are as rigorous and fast-paced as traditional face-to-face classes.
