MSED - ESOL Curriculum and Instruction

In Kansas and throughout the nation, there is a growing need for teachers who can provide instruction and educational support when English is the second language for students. The Newman University Graduate School of Education offers two programs: One is for candidates seeking a graduate degree in education; the other is for candidates seeking ESOL licensure endorsement only.

The Curriculum 

The Newman ESOL Curriculum and Instruction program is designed to ensure that candidates have a deep understanding of curriculum from not only a classroom view, but also from a systems view. Candidates will gain a strong knowledge base of the effective instructional strategies necessary for optimal student learning, as well as fundamentals of educational research, professional writing and curriculum. In addition, graduates are prepared with leadership skill sets necessary to improve the quality of education in highly diverse settings.

This 10 course (30 credit hour) graduate degree program is designed to provide full-time working teachers with the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for excellence in teaching all students, especially those students for whom English is a second language. This degree also prepares teachers to successfully complete the Praxis exam and add the ESOL endorsement to their license.

Course Delivery

All 8-week courses are taught within a flexible delivery model that includes live and recorded Zoom sessions, as well as online modules.  This program is designed for completion in less than two years!
