MS TESOL Summer Residency Program

MS in Bilingual/Multicultural Education and TESOL offers a Summer Residency Program in order to serve graduate students who live far from New Haven in Connecticut as well as other states. The program offers intensive on-ground summer classes and online or hybrid fall and spring classes. Students have an opportunity (but may choose not to) to reside on Southern’s campus in order to be a part of an exciting learning community and eliminate travel. The Summer Residency Program provides students with an option to complete the M.S. in TESOL in just 15 months.
