Curriculum: ESOL Endorsement – Online

To complete the ESOL endorsement, candidates must (1) complete all ESOL course work with a B average or higher, (2) pass the ESOL teacher licensure exam, and (3) submit a satisfactory portfolio.
After completing these requirements, you will be eligible for adding the endorsement to your Oregon teaching license. 

ESOL course work

The required ESOL course work for all endorsement candidates is 18 credit hours:

  • ED 522 Racial and Cultural Harmony in the K-12 Classroom (3 credits)
  • ED 572 Foundations of ESOL Education (3 credits)
  • ED 573 Instructional Approaches for ESOL Education (3 credits)
  • ED 576 Partnerships and Ideologies in ESOL Education (3 credits)
  • ED 579 Linguistics for Teachers (3 credits)
  • ED 510 ESOL Internship (3 credits)

We ask students to start with ED 522 and ED 572. ED 510 requires departmental approval at least one term in advance and can only be taken after all other course work has been completed with a B average or higher.

Courses are typically offered during the following terms, but check the Schedule of Classes for an updated list:

Summer term: ED 522, ED 572, ED 576

Licensure exam

Before applying for licensure, ESOL endorsement candidates must pass the NES English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) test. For additional information about this exam, consult our Program Handbook on OSU College of Education’s ESOL Endorsement site or the ORELA website.
