Minor in English as a New Language/English as a Second Language (ENL/ESL)

The ENL/ESL Minor prepares students with the skills and cultural knowledge needed to meet the growing demand for ENL/ESL teachers in Indiana and Kentucky. The minor provides students with an understanding of:

  • components of language and principles of language acquisition and development
  • culture as a component of effective instruction
  • issues related to equitable and appropriate content and language assessment for language learners
  • individual differentiation options for all students—not just language learners
