This convenient, one-year certificate will prepare you to teach English to speakers of other languages. After completing this four-course program, students wishing to pursue a graduate degree in TESL/Applied Linguistics (MA) or Applied Linguistics & Technology (PhD) at Iowa State University may apply credits from certificate courses towards these programs. Although the TESL Certificate program does not grant endorsement to teach in the State of Iowa, some TESL Certificate courses can be applied toward a K-12 Endorsement for the State of Iowa*.
New students may take up to two classes before seeking admission into the program. This allows students to get started on their graduate certificate as soon as possible. The following are the courses:
The costs detailed below include tuition and fees and are for the academic year 2010-2011. These costs assume students take all TESL Certificate courses over the academic year 2010-2011. Each TESL Certificate course accrues 3 credits.
Students who can demonstrate that they have taken an introduction to linguistic analysis course equivalent to English/Linguistics 511 do not need to take English/Linguistics 511 and could therefore complete the TESL Certificate coursework with 12 credits.
