Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Education and Leadership

The TEFL Certificate prepares individuals to become effective teachers of English to speakers of foreign languages. Our faculty follow an interactive and hands-on approach that enables you to discover the principles and practices of teaching English as a foreign language. During workshops and lectures, you will learn valuable and practical teaching methods and techniques. You will then apply what you learn as you and your peers work together to plan and teach lessons with a class of non-native English speakers. TEFL graduates have taught in over 50 countries around the world.

Students must apply and be accepted to the TEFL Certificate program. If you are a Hamline University undergraduate student, you must have junior or senior status at the start of the program, submit a short statement of purpose, and complete an interview with the lead faculty member, Betsy Parrish. Please email Professor Parrish for more information,

Program Format

The program is offered in two evening courses, four credits each. Part 1 is taught in fall and part 2 is taught in spring.
