English as a New Language (English as a Second Language)

English as a New Language, located in the Department of English, prepares candidates to teach English language learners from kindergarten through high school. The English as a New Language (ENL) license is a K-12 add-on license that requires the candidate to complete a teaching license in a primary licensure area such as elementary or secondary education. The program focuses on the English language system, sociocultural and psychological aspects of English Learner learning, theories of English Learner instruction, and methods and materials for the teaching of English Learners. To earn the license, students must complete 15 credit hours, with ENG 334 being a prerequisite for the four 400-level courses (ENG 436, 437, 438, and 457).
