English as a Second Language (ESL) Licensure is offered through both the undergraduate and graduate education programs. Undergraduate early childhood and elementary majors may add PreK-6 ESL Licensure; Graduate students may add either PreK-6 or Grades 5-12 ESL Licensure.
When you teach ESL, your impact extends beyond the classroom and into the lives of students learning English as a second or third language. A minor and/or licensure in ESL allows you to hone specific skills for teaching young English language learners, and enables you to earn a second license. This makes a Gordon-trained teacher a valuable asset to employers right away.
