Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate (Post Secondary)

With the world’s growing demand for individuals who speak English, the demand for people who can teach English has grown rapidly over the past few decades. We here at Kent State would like to prepare you through offering our TEFL certificate program, which is designed to immerse you within another culture while at the same time giving you the structure and support that will allow you to succeed as you learn to Teach English as a Foreign Language.

Kent State University admission requirements apply, including assessment testing. Students may enroll in the program even if they have prior degrees. Students must declare themselves as a certificate candidate prior to completing half of the courses and must complete a minimum of 15 credits at Kent State University.
