DSU Offers Master's of Arts in Teaching English as a 2nd Language


The English and Foreign Languages Department at Delaware State University is now offering a Master of Arts Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). Classes are now being offered at the main campus in Dover. 

The university also invites prospective students to apply for the TESL program that will be available at the DSU Georgetown site beginning fall 2010.
The program, which was approved last year by the Delaware Department of Education and the Delaware State University Board of Trustees, is designed specifically for teachers interested in giving instruction in English as a second language.
“The Master of Arts in TESL Program promises to be another locus of productive partnership between DSU, the state, and the region,” said Dr. Abdul Aziz-Diop, former chair of the Department of English and Foreign Languages
Teachers and non-teachers interested in the program can register for two courses in the fall, two courses in the spring, two courses for summer session I, and two courses for summer session II. The program leads to certification and is designed for completion in two years. It prepares candidates to teach English as a second language in many settings, including K-12 schools, colleges and universities in the United States and abroad, and adult education programs anywhere in the world. 
Limited scholarships are available through the Department of English and Foreign Languages. Prospective candidates can also apply for the Teach Grant scholarship program that awards up to $4,000 a year to students seeking degrees to teach in high-need fields. For more information on the Teach Grant program, please contact Michelle Rush at (302) 857-6742, or email her at drush@desu.edu.
