Welcome to the TESOL Program at Michigan State University. We have a large and well-established program with eight core faculty members, who have a wide range of research interests. We strive to provide our graduate students with the theoretical foundations and practical experience they need to become professionals in teaching English as a second and foreign language. At the same time, we encourage a critical exploration of the research in the field and provide research opportunities for those students wishing to pursue a Ph.D. in second language studies. Our graduates are employed throughout the United States and the world in positions involving language teaching, teacher training, materials development, program administration, and computer-assisted language learning.
Through the TESOL program, students
acquire a strong foundation in the current theory and practice of the field of language learning and teaching as they prepare to develop their careers.
