Our TESOL/EL certificate coursework is approved by the Indiana DOE to add EL as a content area to a current teaching license. This approval includes our traditional face-to-face courses as well as our online certification and graduate degree programs. If you're not in Indiana but are interested in state licensing, our coursework may be approved for your state as well. Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll let you know!
As a faith-based institution, Huntington University seeks to meet you where you are in your spiritual journey and explore how faith intersects with your education and career.
