The Department of Secondary Education has provided a pathway for students who are interested in teaching ESL. The Pennsylvania Department of Education lists ESL as the number one teacher shortage area in PA. In order to prepare educators to fill this shortage, Kutztown University's Department of Secondary Education offers a minor in ESL education. Candidates successfully completing this program are also eligible to receive the ESL Education Endorsement Certification from the Pennsylvania Department of Education after receiving a Level I instructional certificate.
