Freed-Hardeman University will begin offering a Master of Education in literacy with an emphasis in English as a second language in Fall 2020, pending approval by the Tennessee Department of Education. The program, which bundles a master’s degree and endorsements in both English as a Second Language (ESL) and Reading Specialist, is unique to the state.
The program, designed for currently licensed teachers, will be offered fully online and can be finished in as little as 15 months. A course can be finished in eight weeks and the cost is $610 per credit hour. The program is TEACH grant eligible. Students may enroll in the program with plans to pursue the full degree, or just for the endorsement in either ESL or Reading Specialist.
Freed-Hardeman’s history in teacher preparation dates to 1870. In 1908 when A.G. Freed and N.B. Hardeman joined forces to start a school, they called it National Teachers Normal and Business College. In 1955, Tennessee’s State Board of Education approved Freed-Hardeman’s teacher education program. All programs in FHU’s College of Education are still approved by the state board. The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), now known as the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), first accredited the program in 1981.
