A DIVISION OF THE SCHOOL OF INTERCULTURAL STUDIES Dean: Donald E. Douglas, Ph.D. Director: Herbert C. Purnell, Ph.D. FACULTY Professor: Purnell Asoociate Professors: Chastain, Purgason OBJECTIVES English has become the most widely used language in the world today. The demand for trained teach­ ers in both ESL (English as a Second Language) and EFL (English as a For­ eign Language) continues unabated. There are many opportunities for ser­ vice at home with immigrants, refugees, and foreign students, as well as abroad, especially in developing countries. To help meet these needs, the department of TESOL and Applied Lin­ guistics offers courses which can lead to an undergraduate minor in TESOL and the granting of a certificate to recognize the particular significance of the special­ ized training obtained. The program, while especially applicable to students majoring in English, intercultural stud­ ies, or education, is open to all interested undergraduates. Classroom observation and practice teaching are required. MINOR A TF,SOL Minor requires 19 semes­ ter units of prescribed course work. Students must complete three units in each of the following categories: ■ Linguistics: 407 or lntercultural Studies 310, English 351. ■ Introduction to TESOL: 421, 422 or English 353, 354. ■ English Grammar: 309. ■ lntercultural Communication: 441 or lntercultural Studies 421. ■ In addition, students must com­ plete 427, 460 and 492. Thirteen units of the minor must be completed at Biola. Upon comple­ tion of the 19 units, the student will be awarded a TESOL certificate. Teacher Preparation Program In cooperation with the Educa­ tion Department, TESOL and Applied Linguistics provides courses which can enable teachers who are working toward or who already hold a Califor­ nia Teaching Credential to gain a sup­ plementary authorization in "Intro­ ductory English as a Second Lan­ guage." Those interested should con­ sult with both departments for details.
