You may earn your Graduate Certificate in English Language Learner (ELL) Education online from The University of North Dakota while you continue to live and work in your own community. You are not required to come to campus at any time!
Your transcript and diploma will look the same as for a student who graduated from UND by taking traditional, on-campus courses.
Local ELL / ESL Practicum Experience
You will be required to participate in 60 hours of practicum experience, where you will carry out supervised ELL / ESL teaching experiences directly in a K-12 public school setting in your local community.
This experience has been designed with flexible options for students practicing in rural areas, and provides supervisors with the opportunity to utilize technology for conducting in-person student observations when travel to rural areas is not feasible.
