4 + 1 Master's Degree in TESOL

Earn your Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) just one year after graduating with your Bachelor’s degree from Saint Michael’s College.

With your Master’s, you can travel and engage with diverse cultures nationally or overseas. You will teach international students and new Americans, and join a worldwide professional network. 

The promise of a career

Saint Michael’s new accelerated Master's Degree program responds to the high worldwide demand for qualified teachers of TESOL. The degree qualifies you to teach in colleges, universities, language centers, and community-based programs for adults and children.  

With over 50 years of experience, Saint Michael’s MATESOL program is respected nationally and internationally. With the MA TESOL degree from St. Mike’s, you will be joining a family of hundreds of alumni who teach or hold educational leadership positions around the world.

How it works

The 4 + 1 MA TESOL program allows you to earn two degrees within five years. First, you earn your Bachelor's degree here at St. Mike's. Then you spend one more year on campus to complete your Master's degree.

Here’s the plan:

* Take AL 410 (TESOL Certificate Program) in the summer before your senior year.
* Take 3 graduate courses in their senior year.
* Take one graduate course in the summer session following graduation
* Complete 18 post graduate credits
* Complete an online portfolio

PLUS, if you take two graduate courses in the summer after after completing your Bachelor's degree, you may be able to spend the final graduate semester as an intern in one of Saint Michael's practicum sites abroad.
