This online graduate certificate prepares you with invaluable skills to teach English as you travel abroad. However, this certificate may also serve your needs if you're an international student who wants to teach English in your home country or other countries.
- Did you know that English is the most widespread language in the world and is more widely spoken and written than any other language?
- Did you know that over 700 million people, speak English, as a foreign language?
You can complete this Certificate as a non-degree seeking student, which means you only need to fill out the non-degree application. However, you must have a bachelor's degree or equivalent.
If you're a non-native speaker of English, you're required to submit an official TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) report showing a score of at least 580. If you have a score below 580 but above 500 on the TOEFL, you may be admitted conditionally to the program.
