Welcome to the TESOL homepage! My name is Debra Hardison and I have been the director of the M.A. TESOL program for six years. We have a strong, long-standing tradition in the field of language teacher preparation. Our program focuses on providing connections between theory and research in the area of second language learning, and practice in teaching. Using the links on the left side of each page, you will be able to review information about the requirements and procedure for admission, the courses in our program, and the faculty who teach them. We have eight core faculty members covering a broad range of areas of expertise. This contributes to a diverse curriculum that provides a solid foundation for our graduates' future careers.
