ESOL Endorsement

Offered through the College of Education, the University of West Georgia’s online English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement Program provides “add-on” certification to teach ESOL grades P-12. The endorsement program is valid for educators who have a level 4 or higher renewable professional certificate in any teaching, service, or leadership field, or a permit certificate in a foreign language field. The endorsement program is a graduate level, three-course sequence (9 credit hours) with clinical experiences embedded into the coursework. ESOL endorsement candidates must demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to create environments and learning experiences that engage English learners in active learning and authentic achievement, and candidates must constantly assess and use results for improvement of P-12 student learning.
