The ESL Emphasis program is aimed at students interested in learning about different cultures but who are not necessarily in a career related to the education of bilingual or limited-English-proficiency (LEP) students. You do not need to demonstrate language proficiency in a second language. However, if you decide to earn either the bilingual endorsement or the ESL endorsement, you will need to fulfill the language proficiency and teacher certification requirements of these endorsements. For this degree, you must take at least 36 credit hours, including a 15-hour block of required courses, 9 hours of foundation courses, and 12 hours of electives that you chose with your advisor's approval.
