Teaching English to speakers of other languages

The Statue of Liberty remains a symbol of freedom and justice, qualities that have led millions to leave the country of their birth and come to America seeking a better quality of life. These social developments make the TESOL minor one of the most exciting new academic programs at Maranatha. The academic load includes courses in linguistics, sociolinguistics, cross-cultural communication, teaching methods, and a practicum. Classroom learning is supplemented with nearly two dozen co-curricular programs that allow students unique venues for learning and practical growth.
