Teachers College, Columbia University

Summer Intensive Program

The Summer Intensive TESOL Certificate Program (TCP) is ideal for candidates who are ready to jump into a new career or for current teachers looking to develop new skills over the summer. Due to the intensive nature of the program, we do not recommend pursuing the summer program while also working. 

During the online portion, the hours are flexible. Students will take courses using a highly interactive learning management system called Canvas. The online portion is semi-synchronous, which allows students to study and complete assignments on their own time, abiding by the set deadlines by the instructors.
