The Certification Option is offered as professional preparation for those students who wish to teach EFL to adults.

If a student is unable to complete the CELTA course, they may receive equivalency credit for 3 credit hours by taking an online TEFL certificate (minimum 100 hours) course. The online certificate would stand in place of the following course:

          ENGL 3753 Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) 3

Additional credit will not be offered for courses other than those listed above, in the event a student has taken ENGL 3753 or ENGL 4003 prior to selecting the Certification Option. Students selecting this option should develop a plan for completing the certification in cooperation with their academic advisor and the TESOL professor.
