The TESOL minor is designed to provide a basic foundation for students who are interested in teaching English to speakers of other languages, including teaching English as a foreign language overseas, and tutoring or teaching English as a second language in local church or community programs.

NOTE: Students interested in pursuing TESOL as a profession should continue their studies at the graduate level. A master's degree program is recommended for those interested in teaching at a college or community college.
