The TESL department offers a training program for students who want to teach English to non-native speakers of English. Students can earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in TESL or complete the TESL curriculum while pursuing an Associate of Arts (recommended) or Associate of Science degree.

Students who complete the Certificate of Proficiency will receive a certificate designation on their transcript and will be able to find jobs outside the United States teaching English. 

Students will continue in a program to pursue a TESOL minor, a TESOL bachelor’s degree or a master’s in a related field (i.e. TESOL, Second Language Teaching, Applied Linguistics).

Students will be able to teach English abroad it their native language or if they are competent in English (TOEFL iBT of 63 or successful completion of the ESL program at Snow College) to non-native speakers.


  • Students will be able to write effective lesson plans, teach English Second Language students effectively across the curriculum and evaluate their progress.
