Students pursuing a degree or certificate in Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages at University of Texas Arlington divide their class time between theory and practice. All UT Arlington TESOL students acquire not only a working knowledge of how to be an effective teacher of English to speakers of other languages, but also a sense of how other languages operate. Included in the curriculum is a required practicum course, a course on curriculum development, and options to take elective courses in other departments (including UT Arlington’s College of Education, the Department of English, and the Department of Modern Languages.)
The successful student will obtain theoretical and practical knowledge about those factors that constitute a sound language teaching program, language acquisition processes, language in its socio-cultural settings, language program structures, and support for achievement of learner objectives.
”UTA’s program turned out to be the perfect match in terms of curriculum, internships, and the assistance that is provided to students to establish a wide network of professional contacts.”
