This program provides an “add-on” certification to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) grades P-12 in Georgia public schools. The endorsement program is only valid for educators who have or will hold a teaching credential in another subject area (e.g., elementary education, mathematics, Spanish), a speech and language pathology professional certificate, or school counseling credential from the state of Georgia. The program consists of three courses offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. At present, most of these courses are typically taught through an online format.
Please note: ESOL endorsement courses are in high demand and may fill quickly. When applying, remember that registration for summer and fall semester courses begins approximately April 1 and registration for spring semester courses begins approximately October 15. Courses are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
