English as a New Language License

NOTICE: The English as a New Language (ENL) license is undergoing revision. We plan to begin accepting students again for fall 2016. If you have questions, contact Deborah Mix in the Department of English. 

Beginning this fall, we will offer the first two courses in the revised ENL license. The courses will cover English linguistics for educators and will introduce you to the theories of language learning.

Take your teaching career to the next level by adding an English as a new language (ENL) license to your credentials. The need for licensed ENL teachers has become critical across the United States. Students with limited English proficiency represent a significant population who may be at risk for educational failure due to language barriers. 

This program is offered online and is designed to provide teachers with the tools necessary to ensure student success.
