Online Graduate Certificate in TESOL

The online Graduate Certificate in TESOL is an entry-level credential for teaching adults, in community programs and language schools, in the United States and overseas. The online Graduate Certificate in TESOL is offered through Penn State’s World Campus.

Enrolling in the online TESOL certificate program will allow you to earn a graduate certificate without having to relocate to Penn State. All four courses are delivered entirely online to give you maximum convenience and flexibility around your busy schedule. The program offers a flexible 12-credit course schedule and an interactive online setting, as well as access to Penn State’s vast academic resources.

Note: The online Graduate Certificate in TESOL offered through World Campus at Penn State does NOT fulfill any requirements for public school certification in ESL. If you are a public school teacher (or in-service teacher) looking for information on state certification or licensing in ESL, please visit the ESL Program Specialist page by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the College of Education.
