Engaging and Advancing Community-Centered Teacher Development

Teacher Education Programs

The Department of Teacher Education and Higher Education (TEHE) in the School of Education at UNCG offers a variety of teacher preparation programs including undergraduate programs, Master of Education (M.Ed.) programs, Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) programs, and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in teacher education.

This range of program options are available for all TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) educators.  TESOL educators in our programs include those working with K-12 English learners in public or private schools, those working with adult English learners in non-profit settings, language institutes, and community colleges, and those teaching English as a foreign language overseas. Through our programs, TESOL educators develop understandings of linguistic principles and language development theories; support learners’ language, academic, and identity development in multilingual settings; collaborate with families and communities; and advocate for students and families from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

Specifically, Project EnACTeD provides funding to support:

  • Undergraduate Preservice Teachers – TESOL Second Academic Concentration for Elementary Education Majors
  • Inservice Teachers – English as a Second Language (ESL) Add-on Licensure/ESL Add-on Licensure with Dual Language (DL) Concentration
