Undergraduate Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL)

The TEFL Certificate is an online undergraduate program totaling 12 credit hours. The culminating experience is a supervised EFL practicum in which students are placed in a TESOL course for immigrants, refugees, or international students, such as the Applied English Center at KU, or they may complete their practicum as part of a study abroad experience, such as the TESOL Practicum in Korea.

The certificate courses will meet industry standards as provided by TESOL International. This certificate does not provide sufficient qualifications for a state license or endorsement to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) in U.S. K-12 public schools.
