Editor's Notes

Designed to help current teaching professionals gain new skills, the M.A. English Language Learning (PK-12) program from Western Governor's University focuses on giving the skills needed to teach younger students through adolescents the English language. The school is the only university to hold multiple simultaneous accreditation from four different accrediting commissions. The program itself is available through online methods without any on-campus learning requirements. There is a hands on teaching practicum requirement, but it can be completed in any acceptable classroom within a student's geographic area. It is flexible and highly respected, and uses a competency based approach to teaching.
