Teaching English to Multilingual Students

University of California, Berkeley

About the Program

Are you interested in teaching English to multilingual students abroad or in the USA?  Or, maybe you just want to learn more about teaching and learning English? College Writing Programs and Education have teamed up to offer a certificate that can be earned in one summer. You can take all the courses in one summer, or spread them out over two or more summers. Students will be offered a certificate upon successful completion of all five courses. Even if you aren’t pursuing a certificate, you are welcome to join any of these classes individually if you are interested. Registration is available through the Summer Sessions website.

Please direct questions about this certificate program to the Director of College Writing Programs.
