Program Description:

Individuals majoring in TESOL receive the ESOL Endorsement after the first 2 semesters in the program.  The M.Ed. in TESOL has been approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission and is fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

Program of Study:

The requirements for the M.Ed. in Inclusive Education/TESOL may be met by completing an approved 36 semester hours of graduate course work, including preparing and presenting a professional portfolio. Note: While applicants who hold ESOL endorsement will not be given graduate credit for courses taken in a PLU program, special arrangements can be made to substitute other approved courses to avoid duplication of content.
