Earn the ESL (English as a Second Language) Program Specialist Certificate in ONE SUMMER—Or begin this summer with accelerated coursework and finish during the academic year. Add a relevant, important and marketable certificate (recognized by the PA Department of Education) so that you can meet the needs of our increasingly multilingual student body. The PA Program Specialist Certificate is an add-on certificate that requires Instructional 1 certification in another area.
