Develop the foundational and pedagogical strategies needed to effectively serve those who are learning English as a second language.

Emmanuel’s English Language Learner certificate program gives educators the knowledge and skills they need to help students at all levels of English proficiency.

Coursework prepares educators to effectively shelter their content instruction, which allows English language learners (ELLs) to access the curriculum and succeed in the classroom.

Students who complete Emmanuel’s English Language Learner certificate program will be eligible for the state’s SEI Teach Endorsement.

(Note: This program is not a requirement for earning a Master of Education degree at Emmanuel College.)
