ESL Endorsement

The Campbellsville University TESL Endorsement program includes 5 courses (see below) with a total of 13 hours of course work, and has a 30-hour field experience component built in, with each of the 5 courses requiring 6 hours of the field experience. These field experiences reflect a developmental progression, from simple observation/reporting to assisting a teacher and actual teaching. The “English to Speakers of Other Languages” portion of the Praxis II exam is required after the completion of all the endorsement coursework, after which the endorsement will be granted by the Commonwealth of Kentucky and attached to the teacher certification.
