City University of Seattle offers a comprehensive Advanced TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate that covers everything offered in our basic TESOL certificate with the addition of three courses and a more structured, in-depth internship.
Courses are positioned to help students capitalize on the theoretical knowledge expected from a graduate-level education with the best in pedagogical instruction from CityU’s experienced professors.
- Flexible learning options: 15 of the certificate’s 24 credits are available online. The additional nine credits, including your faculty-guided internship, are taken onsite in Seattle during CityU’s summer intensive program.
- Time to completion: The entirety of the program can be completed onsite during two consecutive summers, or online over three quarters followed by one in-person summer intensive.
- Internship: The field experience element is a highlight of the program, offering unparalleled hands-on experiences so students can gain confidence as an overseas classroom teacher even if they come from a non-teaching background.
- Work toward a master’s degree: If you’re interested in teaching English in a college setting, CityU’s Master of Education in Adult Learning with TESOL Emphasis could be for you. All 24 credits from the TESOL Advanced certificate can be applied toward your TESOL emphasis area.
Our advanced TESOL graduates are qualified to teach in private and public schools overseas or become tutors, advisers, directors and volunteers throughout the international education industry.
