Using the power of language to help students thrive
Of the 1.7 billion English-speaking people in the world, more than two thirds of those people do not consider English to be their first language. As the desire to learn English grows across the globe, the need for qualified teachers who can support English learners is increasing. Adding an EL license to your elementary education degree will equip you to help students at a young age learn English and thrive in their school and community environments.
Elementary Education & Teaching English Learners Curriculum
Any education major may add an additional certification in EL to their teaching license, but this unique program is a dual licensure program that will equip you to work more effectively with English language learners while pursuing an elementary education career. With an EL license, you will be qualified to work in specialized EL programs in a P-12 setting, while your elementary education license will serve those in K-6.
With a series of comprehensive courses, field experiences, and student teaching, Huntington University will set you up for success to become an effective elementary teacher, and your multicultural practicum experiences can serve you well as you add your EL license.
