The TESOL Program aims to provide teachers who are professional, dedicated, innovative and critical thinkers. They would also be able to practice the concept of sustainability and collaboration; possess broad and comprehensive perspectives on research as well as having deep knowledge in the process of teaching and learning. They should be equipped with flexible and adaptable teaching skills suited to different situations. The program is also aimed at producing educators who are equipped with positive attitudes towards school, education and society. In addition to providing professional training in the field of education, the program is structured to give emphasis to scientific specialization in academic fields. The emphasis and exposure to some of the other academic disciplines are aimed at providing the students with more comprehensive knowledge on education.
In this program, the professional and pedagogical components are under the School of Educational Studies while the subject-matter component is under the School of Humanities. The students will take multimedia courses as their minor. These courses are offered by the Centre for Instructional technology and Multimedia.
