Ohio’s communities and schools are dynamic places where more than 90 languages are used every day. Developing multilingual teachers and classroom communities that foster academic learning as well as English-language proficiency are some of the goals of Ohio State’s TESOL BSEd program. We prepare you for the dual role of language educator and advocate for multilingual students and their families.

Being a first-generation student I often needed and searched for support which I truly felt like I received from my program. The staff created an environment where my contributions and experiences were valued, which only increased my desire and confidence to engage in it. TESOL is a field in which I am always learning and maintaining a global perspective in the classroom through interacting with families and students. I am able to create a unique and safe space for a diverse group of students to better understand language learning and themselves within a community.
