Our TESOL and World Language Education faculty members are multilingual/multicultural language educators and learners.

As a result, our students are exposed to a range of advanced educational theories and teaching methods.
Additionally, our faculty have partnerships with public schools and organizations, and are affiliated with Linguistics, Germanic and Slavic Studies, Romance Languages, the Qualitative Research Program, the Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, and other units on campus.
We have a robust doctoral program which includes a track that leads to T-7 certification.
