Linguistics    teach in K-12 opt for this route.

Program        Master's degree but are interested in working in the field.

               There is no universally accepted TESOL certificate for
               teaching adults. There is only one local program offered by a
               private language training school. Cambridge has a program
               (called the CELTA) that is more widely recognized overseas.
               The professional organization TESOL does not endorse any of
               these programs in particular.These programs are typically very
Certificate    practical in nature and emphasize the practice of teaching over
