Certificate in TEFL

Azusa Pacific’s Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language equips undergraduate students with the basic qualifications needed to teach English in a multicultural setting.

The Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) program equips students who desire advanced training in order to start their career in teaching English without pursuing the full Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) degree. This graduate-level certification provides students with the basic qualifications needed to teach in a multicultural setting, and is earned by completing the first two courses in the M.A. in TESOL program, which can be applied toward the master’s degree if further graduate work is desired. Coursework can be completed on campus, online, or in the field.
