MEd in K-12 English as a Second Language Education: Teacher Licensure
The MEd in K-12 ESL Education: Teacher Licensure degree program prepares educators who are pursuing licensure or certification as a teacher of students who are learning English as a second language.

The CDE and CCHE recognize the high quality of JIU’s MEd preparation degrees and have designated JIU as a state-approved program of teacher and principal/administrator preparation. For most states, graduating from an approved program of preparation is an important step toward achieving educator licensure or certification.
