Our graduate students hail from all over the United States and the world and our diversity reflects the cultures and impressively broad range of practitioners and students within the TESOL field. We pride ourselves on having a small, close-knit community of students and faculty, where our students can form a lifetime network of professional friends.
On campus, students have access to a variety of services and events, including our International Coffee Hour, nationally recognized theatre, sports events, and speakers from all over the world. These add to our unique community approach to learning.
