About Us

The University of Toledo has two master’s level options to prepare teachers of English as a Second Language: a Master of Arts (MA) in English with Concentration in English as a Second Language and a Master of Arts and Education (MA-Ed.) in English as a Second Language. The MA-Ed. in ESL is primarily intended for those already possessing valid Ohio teaching licensure who wish to add to their background relevant to K-12 education. The MA in English with Concentration in ESL is intended for those preparing to teach at the college level in the US or abroad, in language training programs for the workplace, and a variety of other environments. (Note: the MA with Concentration in ESL is not a literature degree with some ESL, but a completely separate track from our Concentration in Literature.)
