Early Childhood - Adolescence English as a
Second Language Program

The English as a Second Language (ESL) Program is available for students who plan to teach English to non-native speakers from birth to age 21, in PK through 12th grade.

Students may select the Early Childhood through Adolescence ESL major for grades PK through 12. The ESL minor will result in an additional certification at the same level as your initial license. Students must already have or be in process of completing certification requirements for one of the following programs:

• Early Childhood
• Middle Childhood through Early Adolescence
• Early Adolescence through Adolescence: English, Mathematics, Social Studies or Science
• Early Childhood through Adolescence: World Languages

Students gain real world experience through in the classroom by student teaching at area schools. Students who satisfactorily complete the program requirements also meet the Wisconsin teacher certification requirements for ESL.
