          • English
          • ESL (English as a Second Language)

          The fastest-growing student population in the United States is students who are learning English as an additional language and there is a severe shortage of qualified teachers in the field.  This program will provide students with the expertise needed to meet the various academic needs of the English language learning population. This program provides instruction in language acquisition, intercultural communication, assessment, and language teaching methodologies. Edinboro University offers coursework leading to a PA ESL Program Specialist Certificate alone or in conjunction with an MEd in Middle and Secondary Instruction.
