Author: Hayriye Kayi-Aydar

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

FYI Body: The Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville is pleased to announce that a new master's program in TESOL is being launched for Fall 2013. The program is designed to prepare teachers in the U.S. and abroad to teach English to learners whose first language is not English; graduates are also prepared to create and implement curriculum and appropriate assessments for English as a second language (ESL). It also prepares students for further graduate study (Education Specialist or Ph.D.s). Included in the course work for the M.Ed. are the four courses required by the Arkansas Department of Education for endorsement in ESL.

For more information about the TESOL program, please contact Dr. Felicia Lincoln at flincoln@uark.edu or Dr. Hayriye Kayi-Aydar at hayriyek@uark.edu

For more information about the admission requirements, please visit http://grad.uark.edu/future/applying/index.php

Fall applications will be accepted until August 1.
