A TESOL certificate is only available to full-time University of Tampa students. The certificate is widely accepted as academic and practical preparation in the teaching of English as a second or foreign language (ESL/EFL). (This should not be confused with state teacher certification necessary to teach in public schools.) Students who pursue the TESOL certificate would be interested in living, teaching and traveling abroad after graduation. For more specific information, see Mark Putnam, Associate Professor of English.
