If you already have your bachelor's degree and are licensed to teach in the state of Indiana, you are eligible for our graduate-level dual licensure programs in ENL/ESL.
You can choose either to seek your license as part of the Literacy, Culture and Language Education master's program or simply seek certification without the addition of a graduate-level degree. Whichever route you choose, you will take the same 21 credit group of ENL/ESL classes.
