Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages - Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

The TESOL Minor is designed to give Saint Michael’s students a solid foundation in the principle skills necessary to teach English as an additional language to speakers of other languages. Students in the TESOL Minor can benefit from and use the Minor in several ways: Students majoring in a foreign language will better understand the linguistic and cultural components involved in language learning; students planning Study Abroad will have useful opportunities to work with international students from around the world as tutors and/or conversations partners; students preparing to teach may work with second language learners in the English Language Programs at Saint Michael’s; and students planning any career that involves international communication will gain cross-cultural sensitivity to other users of English as a global language. The TESOL Minor gives students a head start on an MA TESOL degree (Master of Art in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Students who complete the TESOL Minor would be able to finish the MATESOL in one calendar year after their graduation.


The TESOL Minor consists of five courses.  For more details, see the TESOL Minor Requirments on the Applied Linguistics website.
