MASTER OF EDUCATION PROGRAM
In response to the needs of a growing population of English Language Learners, Mary Baldwin is pleased to offer a Master of Education degree in English as a Second Language (ESL). This specialization is for licensed teachers who wish to add an endorsement in ESL. Our comprehensive program is grounded in theory, successful practices with English Language Learners, leadership, and research. Our program provides students with a broad understanding of how to design curriculum, instruction, and assessments; meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students, incorporate technology into instruction, and design and conduct inquiry-based research.
Students are required to have completed a modern, spoken foreign language through the intermediate college level before finishing the program. Prior college coursework will apply to this requirement. All courses for the concentration are online.
