The New School, a private university in New York City’s Greenwich Village, serves undergraduate and graduate students across a range of fields with a commitment to bringing practices in design and social research to studying issues of our time and challenging students to become engaged citizens dedicated to solving programs and contributing to the public good. The MATESOL program is deeply rooted in the goal of lifelong higher learning articulated by the founders of The New School in 1919. The comprehensive 30-credit MA program offers specializations in teaching or curriculum development and supports hands-on classroom practicums and flexible study options with online-only options and intensive onsite summer teaching residencies. A cornerstone of the program is the outreach programs which provide opportunities for our students to teach and design curricula for communities in need, including food service workers in New York City, parents in multilingual families, and survivors of violence. These programs provide students with invaluable in-class experience, enhance their résumés, and ensure that they see firsthand how learning English can empower and assist underserved communities.
