A graduate certificate is advanced instruction typically sought out after obtaining a college degree such as a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. The time frame for completion can take from one month to several months, or up to three years depending on the program.

What is a graduate certificate in TESOL? This type of course of study gives students high-level instruction in teaching English as a second language. Lectures can include theories and practices in methodology as well as direct practical skills needed for performing daily duties pertaining to the job. Specific courses that may be offered are linguistics, second language acquisition and language and culture for educators. Students of this program will, in most programs, have a designated minimum number of supervised hours teaching in a classroom.

Upon graduation, a student will have honed communication and problem-solving skills that are important for the classroom setting and for daily life. Gaining an appreciation of a variety of cultures, students also understand the importance of valuing others different from themselves.

Costs will vary depending on the educational institution of your choice. Location, duration and content can affect fees. Contact the administrative offices of your potential schools for questions about costs.
