Teachers licensed in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
are in high demand in Kansas and across the country. If you are
interested in making a difference in children’s lives you should
consider an endorsement in ESOL.
Prior to beginning the ESOL Endorsement program, you will need to be
admitted to the Fort Hays State University Graduate School as a
degree-seeking or non-degree seeking student. In addition, you will
need to file an ESOL Endorsement Program form with the department. If you wish to teach in Kansas, a valid Kansas teaching license is required for this program. If you are from outside Kansas, please check with the department regarding licensure in your state.
The ESOL teaching program is fully accredited by the National
Council on Accreditation of Teacher Education and the Kansas State
Department of Education.
TOTAL HOURS REQUIRED FOR ENDORSEMENT : 15 hours
