The New School TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) master’s program offers training in teaching and in curriculum development with a focus on experiential learning and reflective practice.

In this program, students learn to approach English as a global language and address the diverse, complex needs of adult learners of English around the world. The New School’s graduates develop a keen understanding of social justice and the needs of adult English language learners.

The program is rooted in The New School’s commitment to progressive social change — with an approach to language instruction that embeds diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values of teaching and curriculum design. Students have flexible study options and can study on campus in New York City, online, or a combination of both, catering to both full-time students as well as working professionals.

At The New School, students have the academic freedom to shape their unique, individual paths for a complex and rapidly changing world. With leading-edge faculty and world-renowned alumni, we are committed to developing students who will have an impact on the world and solving today’s most pressing social issues.

The New School’s international faculty includes some of the most respected authors and ESOL professionals in the field, including Steve Cornwell, Jeremy Harmer, Carol Lethaby, Emily Reynolds, and ELTon award winner Scott Thornbury. Learn More
