This certificate can help students find an entry level position in a language institute or an adult education program in the United States or overseas. Students who wish to start a career teaching at a college or university may need to have a master's degree. SIT also offers a Master of Arts in TESOL degree. Students who pursue an MA in TESOL at SIT after completing the certificate program can apply two graduate credits from the certificate program toward their MA. They will also receive a tuition reduction of $2,000.

As a graduate of the program, you will have access to information about teaching positions through SIT's Career Center, located on SIT's Brattleboro campus.
