Seton Hall University now Offering Online TESOL Certificate



New TESOL Endorsement

Nowadays, every teacher in an American International School is an ESL teacher.   Teaching students for whom English is not a native language poses a number of opportunities and challenges for teachers of all subjects and grade levels.  With this in mind, Seton Hall has developed a certificate program through its Graduate College of Education and Human Resources.  The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Endorsement program allows teachers to explore the many unique needs of English Language Learners while earning graduate credits from Seton Hall University and ultimately meeting the requirements for an ESL endorsement from the New Jersey Department of Education. The endorsement program for ESL certification, consisting of 15 graduate credits, is designed for individuals who possess a standard teaching certificate in a content field or elementary education and who wish to become certified to teach English as a Second Language.

Convenient for International Educators

Seton Hall, through the Institute for International Schools, is committed to serving the needs of international educators.  The new TESOL Endorsement is offered entirely online so that teachers anywhere can be a part of the Seton Hall community.  Classes offered to an international cohort are customized to address the experience of teachers outside the United States, and tuition is competitive with other prestigious universities in the international market.  Only twelve students from around the world are needed to form a cohort and Seton Hall is currently recruiting the first cohort of this exciting program.

Applicable to a Master’s Degree

The TESOL Endorsement is only the latest in Seton Hall’s offerings for International Educators.  Seton Hall also offers Certificates in Autism Studies, Supervision, and Teacher Certification and Master’s degrees in Instructional Design and Technology, Special Education, Education Leadership Management and Policy, and School Counseling.  Courses taken for the TESOL Endorsement Program can be applied towards any of these Master’s degrees allowing students to personalize their course of study.

Actively Recruiting

Seton Hall, through the Institute for International Schools, is actively recruiting students for the TESOL Endorsement’s Inaugural Cohort.  For more information about the program, visit the Institute’s website .

If you would like to join the cohort, please contact Meaghan O’Connor, coordinator of Urban and International Initiatives at or 973-275-2854.
