With the preeminent position of English as a global language, numerous international opportunities exist for teachers with a practical understanding of linguistics, intercultural communication, and theories of second language acquisition. The teaching of English also provides an unparalleled platform for ministry, especially in contexts where formal missionary opportunities are limited or unavailable.

Since TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a concentration within the English major, students will also be equipped for a number of other careers that require the ability to think analytically and creatively and communicate effectively. With its emphasis on cross-cultural communication, the concentration serves as a starting point for students aiming at careers in the following areas:

  • International business
  • Non-profit and development
  • Human resources
  • Civil service
  • International and immigration law
