OBJECTIVES TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers ofOther Languages) English has become the most widely used language in the world today, particu­ larly in the areas of science, commerce, and education. Tens of thousands of students in developing countries are required to learn English in school. Thousands more study English in order to pursue careers or educa­ tional programs demanding English lan­ guage skills. Refugees and immigrants to the United States desire English both to survive and to establish themselves in their new homeland. There is thus a considerable demand for qualified teachers of English both here and abroad. To help meet the need for trained teach­ ers of English as a Second Language (ESL) or English as a Foreign Language (EFL), the Department of TESOL and Applied Linguistics offers two regular programs in TESOL: a Certificate in TESOL and an M.A. in TESOL. The programs are academically rigorous, yet focus on the practical aspects of teaching in a variety of settings. The de­ partment also seeks to serve teachers desir­ ing to continue their professional advance­ ment or upgrade their qualifications, and non-degree students interested in gaining basic teaching or tutoring skills, by offering a variety of separate courses, from introduc­ tory to advanced. The Certificate in TESOL is a one-year full-time program designed to enable post­ baccalaureate students to develop both a solid academic foundation in second lan­ guage pedagogy and practical skills in teach­ ing English in cross-cultural situations. Part­ time students also may enroll in the pro­ gram, taking up to three years to complete it. The MA in TESOL, which takes up to two years for completion of the course work, encompasses the goal of the Certificate pro­ gram plus the additional goals of broader academic training and an individually de­ signed project leading to the writing either of
