The New School Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA TESOL) welcomes applications from motivated individuals whose previous education and other accomplishments show potential for effective and creative work as English language teachers. A bachelor's degree or the equivalent from an accredited college or university is required for admission. You can take the program full-time or part-time.
Admission to the MA TESOL program is based on a number of factors. Applications are reviewed by an admission committee consisting of admission counselors, the director of the MA TESOL program, and members of the faculty. Your statement of purpose, academic transcripts, résumé/work history, letters of recommendation, and required personal interview are all carefully evaluated. ESOL teaching experience is not a prerequisite for the Teaching concentration, although it is welcome.>>>2019年美国新学院各专业硕士申请条件汇总【完整版】
