More information regarding our summer 2018 offerings will be made available this fall. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
The TESOL Teacher Training Institute is targeted towards undergraduate, graduate, and post-B.A. students, and is open to students from any concentration, major, or area of interest.
There are several skills you will gain from this program some of which include developing transferable skills needed when teaching and interacting with others who may not speak English; applying for an international scholarship such as Fulbright; creating professional artifacts (CV, teaching philosophy, online portfolio) to prepare for a career in teaching, education, community development, and linguistic justice; gaining teaching and tutoring experiences necessary to get a teaching job in the USA or abroad; and creating a TESOL cohort for future collaboration and support.
All students who successfully complete the course will receive their Hampshire College TESOL certificate. This certificate is a great stepping stone into the world of teaching English to speakers of other languages both in the USA and abroad.
Just a month after completing this summer's 2017 TESOL Teacher Training Institute, here are some of our participants' accomplishments:
We encourage anyone with a strong interest/background in the topics covered during the program to apply.
2017 application review began on February 1, 2017. After this date, applications were reviewed on a rolling basis by the faculty selection committee. Once students were accepted to the program, they were required to make a $400 program deposit. Please note that the full tuition balance was due by May 15, 2017.
2017 program participants needed to purchase the following textbook:
Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language, 4th edition by Marianne Celce-Murcia, Donna M. Brinton, Marguerite Ann Snow, David Bohlke
This text was used throughout the duration of the program. This is an important text for program participants to have even after the completion of the TESOL Teacher Training Institute.
We encourage students to contact your financial aid or summer internship office at your home institution and ask about your options for applying for aid. We will work with all institutions on securing outside funding for students when available.
For summer 2017: The full tuition balance is due by May 15, 2017. There are no tuition refunds available on or after June 1, 2017. If a student should withdraw from a summer academic program at Hampshire College for any reason, the program fee will be refunded according to the following schedule:
The student's date of withdrawal is determined by the postmark on the written notification of withdrawal from the program.
Important arrival, check-in, and residence information for all participants is available here. Please note that you should plan to be on campus and settled into housing by 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 4, 2017 the day before the program begins.
We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations to any student who might require them. We encourage you to visit Hampshire's office of accessibility resources and services website, or contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
