ESOL Endorsement

The English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) endorsement provides candidates with coursework that aligns with the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) standards and with the School of Education's Shared Values. In addition to knowledge-based coursework, candidates engage in clinical activities across their program so as to become an ESOL educator who is able to teach students from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds, many of whom speak no or limited English, in a variety of program models. The ESOL endorsement is state (TSPC) and nationally accredited (NCATE).

The ESOL endorsement is offered for both licensed teachers and undergraduate students:

If you are a licensed teacher, please contact Anne Rasmussen, graduate program specialist, at rasmusse@up.edu or 503.943.8257 for more information about the ESOL endorsement.

If you are an undergraduate student interested in pursuing the ESOL endorsement as part of your program, please consult with your faculty advisor for more information.
