    Is the course work for the TESOL program acceptable for a Kentucky teacher who is attempting to move from rank II to rank 1 ? I currently teach high school English and have no TESOL certifications.

    I am interested in the TESOL online propram. I am not a certified teacher, don’t plan to become certified and understand that even with a TESOL Masters I would not be able to teach K-12. Is this still the program for me if I am interested in teaching privately, community college or abroad? Thanks!!!

    I would like to know if any part of this program requires its students to travel to the university’s campus. Also I am interested in potentially working with university aged students as well as adult, will this program only benefit me for K-12? Thanks!
