English as a Second Language Minor

Program Details

Program Overview

The English as a Second Language (ESL) minor leads to the Wisconsin state license for English as a Second Language. The ESL (395) license allows teachers to teach the English language to English Learners in classrooms at the developmental level specified on their license. Undergraduate teacher education students can add an ESL minor to their program of study to receive licensure at one of the following developmental levels:
● Early Childhood-Middle Childhood
● Middle Childhood-Early Adolescence
● Early Adolescence-Adolescence
You should work with your advisor to determine which ESL license is appropriate for your program of study. All courses meet the accreditation standards of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI).
