Program Description: There are several options for pursuing graduate study in Teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language (TEFL/TESL) in the Department of English. One option is the M.A. in English program with a graduate curriculum exclusively focused on TEFL/TESL [f1].

Other options include: (a) the Joint M.A. program with the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature, which allows students to pursue two graduate programs combined, leading to two M.A. degrees — one in English with an area of emphasis in TEFL/TESL, and one in foreign languages; and (b) Peace Corps Masters International (PCMI), available to all students in the Department of English across the various programmatic concentrations. The PCMI is a four-year program in which the student completes the first three semesters of study at Colorado State University prior to completing two years of service to the Peace Corps. In the student's final semester, s/he completes degree requirements and earns the master's degree.
Available Financial Aid: Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) are available on a competitive basis for those applying to enter in the fall semester. There are two GTA options for TEFL/TESL students: (1) a Composition instructor in English department, or (2) an ESL instructor at INTO-CSU. For more details, visit
