English as a Second Language (ESL) Add-On Licensure Program

Kay McClanahan

UNCP’s Department of English & Theatre has offered a program leading to add-on ESL licensure since 2001. The program consists of the following six courses (18 hours):

  • ENG 3460 Aspects of the English Language
  • ENG 3710 English Grammar
  • ENG 4810/5810 Phonetics and Phonology
  • ENG 4830/5830 Second Language Acquisition
  • ENG 4850/5850 Cultural Issues of English as a Second Language
  • TESL 4890/5890 Applied Pedagogy of Teaching ESL

Students can take the courses for either undergraduate or graduate credit and, upon completion of the program, can add on to either the “A” or “M” license. All courses are offered in the evening, and the program can be completed within two years. Students are also required to have studied a foreign language and to demonstrate oral proficiency in English during an interview with the coordinator of the program.

The department also offers a minor in TESOL that does not carry add-on licensure.

For further information about the program, please contact Dr. Eun Hee Jeon, Department of English, Theatre and Foreign Languages, eunhee.jeon@uncp.edu, 910.521.6842

ENG 3460 Aspects of the English Language and ENG 3710 English Grammar are offered each semester. Each semester, one course is offered during the day and the other at night. All other ESL courses are offered in the evening.
