USC Upstate’s Post-Baccalaureate Certificate
The USC Upstate Post-Baccalaureate Certificate is a 15-credit hour program designed for K-12 school personnel who wish to advance their professional development and enhance their knowledge and expertise in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) but who are not seeking a master’s degree.
The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in ESOL program is offered in a 12-consecutive month sequence. The fall and spring courses require practicum experiences in which candidates must work directly with speakers of other languages either, in after-school or weekend programs, to meet course expectations.
Though the rotation of courses will remain constant, graduate candidates may elect to complete their program at a slower pace, as long as the program is completed within three years. Courses towards the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate are presented in the suggested order , but you may begin your coursework anytime throughout the year if necessary.
