Break down language barriers

Concordia's online ESL program can be taken as an endorsement-only program (21 credits) or combined with a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction (30 credits). As Michigan communities grow increasingly diverse, the number of students who do not speak English is on the rise. The need for caring, competent teachers who can help students improve English language skills is critical. CUAA's Online ESL Endorsement program will equip you with relevant research-based teaching strategies and help you to master second language methodology to increase your effectiveness in teaching ESL students in grades K-12.
