English to Speakers of Other Languages Online M.A.T.
The M.A.T. ESOL online program is 45 hours (9 hours of college core courses; 9 hours English as a Second Language; 9 hours reading endorsement; 9 hours of applied linguistics; 9 hours of practicum). Entry into the program could begin in any semester; however, applicants are required to take TSLE 7440 prior to enrolling in practicum hours, and EDRD 7600 or EDRD 7630 prior to enrolling in EDRD 7650. Consequently, M.A.T. students (who are required to complete a year-long fall/spring practicum) could enroll in summer and complete the program in a minimum of 4 semesters; otherwise, the program would take a minimum of 5 semesters. This degree addresses the professional standards from IRA for classroom teachers of reading and from TESOL for teachers of ELL learners.
