Two tracks for the MA-TESOL

There are two tracks for pursuing the Master of Arts in TESOL. The Accelerated MA-TESOL is for current undergraduate Wheaton College students. These students can earn their graduate degree by staying for a fifth year of study. The General MA-TESOL is for those who already hold a bachelor’s degree (from Wheaton College or another institution). The General MA-TESOL has three different options for completion ranging from a fully residential, field-based and a hybrid Flex option.
