MA (TESOL) Program Profile

(View the following link for the 4 week intensive TESOL certificate program.)
The MA (TESOL) Department was founded in 1995 when a need for an English-speaking graduate program in the north of Thailand was realized. Today, the program attracts both local and international students who wish to enrich their professional skills. A high standard of spoken and written English is expected from MA (TESOL) students. The program’s small size affords students the opportunity to receive a high level of attention and support within a genial learning environment.
