Interested in Teaching for Us?


As a growing ESL program, we sometimes need more talented instructors to meet our students’ needs. Though we welcome diverse resumes and backgrounds, we do require that candidates have experience and/or training in areas that qualify them to teach in an ESL setting at a university. The minimum degree level required is an MA or a PhD in a language / language teaching discipline, or equal degree level completion in a non-related field that is complemented by the completion of a language teacher training certificate / credential.
