With this certificate, students are quipped to teach ESL / EFL in many settings in the United States and abroad, and is a key to entering closed countries. It fulfills the Illinois State Board of Education requirements for an ESL secondary endorsement. TESOL courses are offered through semester-long and intensive classes, both in the classroom and hybrid (combination of online and classroom work). Students wishing to complete a TESOL certificate must apply to, and be accepted as a student in, LCU's School of Undergraduate Studies.
