NYU Shanghai’s joint Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development provides an alternative track within NYU Steinhardt’s MA TESOL program allowing students to attend their courses in Shanghai and online, and to complete a summer immersion in New York City. The two-year program is designed to accommodate in-service teachers and working professionals in China with courses offered typically on Saturdays during the Fall and Spring terms, and at varying times during the Summer immersion.

The program will help students to deepen their expertise as English teachers for children and adolescents, from kindergarten through high school, and help students advance their leadership skills in and out of the classroom. The curriculum, taught entirely in English, is grounded in pedagogical methods from the United States and tailored to Chinese contexts. Students will learn from American-trained NYU Steinhardt and NYU Shanghai faculty who have expertise in second and foreign language acquisition research, methodology and years of experience working with Chinese students. Upon graduation, students receive a NYU-granted MA in TESOL degree, recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
