The dual MAEd&HD in the field of curriculum and instruction with a concentration in secondary education and graduate certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) program prepares teachers and other educational personnel for increased responsibilities in the planning, implementation, research, and evaluation of curriculum and instruction. The program of study includes curriculum development, research and evaluation of instructional practice, teacher education, work with special populations, and school policy and leadership. The addition of the TESOL certificate is designed to prepare pre-service and in-service teachers for working with English learners in classrooms within and beyond the United States.

The 12 credits required for the certificate may be applied toward the master's degree program requirements. Students in the combined program must complete all requirements for both the MAEd&HD and the certificate.
