1.  Looking for MA TESOL Summer Programs

Posted 7 days ago
Greetings!

I am a fully time administrator in Shanghai China, looking for a MA TESOL study program that will allow me to keep my job. I dont like online programs too well so I'm hoping to find a blended program with some on campus classes during the summer. My research is going slow as I'm investigating this one college at a time! If anyone knows of a resource or has suggestions I'd be grateful!

You might want to check out the MA in TESOL through LCC International University in Klaipeda Lithuania: M.A. in TESOL . I'm doing my MA through them right now. It's a hybrid program with a summer residency and then online classes during the year. The residency is good to get to know the professors and fellow cohort students.

Another program you might want to check out is
MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages | Marlboro College

MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages | Marlboro College
The Marlboro MATESOL program is for those who want to do more than teach English to speakers of other languages. It is for those who are curious and innovative, who are passionate about what they do, and who want to teach with intention, mindfulness and courage.

2 months during the summer for 2 summers and the year in between online! I teach on the program and am happy to answer any questions in regards to the program!

Hi John,

Saint Michael's College in Vermont offers an Online+On-campus MATESOL program, where two 6-week summers are spent at Saint Michael's College, and the remaining courses are taken at a distance (online) in Fall+Spring semesters. I have been teaching a distance course on Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) online in this program for 18 years and designed/have been teaching a Curriculum & Syllabus Design course online since 2012. This hybrid program has become quite popular as it allows students to keep working in their jobs or going abroad to teach while completing their master's degree program.

The link to the hybrid program is at MATESOL: OnLine + OnCampus Program

Check out the summer MATESOL program from School for International Training in Brattleboro, VT. I used this program while I was working in Japan and can highly recommend it. The atmosphere is a combination of college and summer camp. The classes are very focused and the students come from all over the world. I especially appreciated that they send an instructor out to you for a week between the two summers to work with you in your job situation. Check it out: Master of Arts in TESOL (online with short residencies in Vermont) | SIT Graduate Institute

I'm sorry I didn't see your original post sooner.  Georgetown University also has a TEFL certificate program that combines 16 weeks of excellent practical online training with culminating face-to-face practice (which can be done over 5 weekends or in a compressed 5-day period).

​I second Janet's suggestion and description about SIT MATESOL program. The location and the time of the program makes it feel more like a professional retreat.

Another great low-residency MA in TESOL at Marlboro College, also in Brattleboro, Vermont. The style of education is highly experiential and reflective. Many of the teachers teach (or have taught) at SIT as well. I highly recommend it!
