TESOL Certificate – Undergraduate
To recognize the significance of the training received, a certificate is granted to those who complete 18 credits of prescribed TESOL coursework with a grade of "C" or higher. Sixteen of these credits must be completed at Biola University. While the Biola undergraduate certificate in TESOL does not have the same coverage as the graduate certificate, it should be noted that it requires much more than the typical entry level certificate and, as such, qualifies its holders for work in many institutions in the United States and abroad.
Students interested in TESOL training may note that there is an unregulated market for a wide range of "certificates." While Biola University-issued TESOL certificates are for year-long programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, the department can also prepare certificates of completion for students who complete one or more courses. These certificates specify number of contact hours and topics covered.
