TROY Service Centers meet the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree. Because adult learners often have different educational needs than traditional students, courses are provided at times and in formats designed around people who work and have other commitments for their time.

At TROY, we believe communication is the cornerstone for success. That’s why we prepare our students to effectively navigate and flourish in a rapidly changing and assimilating world. As partnerships are forged between countries in the name of commerce and progress, never has it been so important to understand one another. Through TROY’s Master of Science in Second Language Instruction (SLI), you can use your baccalaureate degree in English, sociology, education, psychology, journalism, linguistics or any language-related discipline to help prepare others to teach secondary languages around the world.
Every day, the United States continues to partner with other countries to develop industry with various non-English speaking nations at home and abroad. Because of this, individuals working in the areas of trade, tourism, media and science are discovering the need to learn a second language as the world continues building its global market place. TROY’s SLI program is a 31- to 33-hour program—offered in thesis and non-thesis track options—that focuses on preparing domestic and international students for future careers in second language teaching.
Whether you’re interested in traveling the world instructing others who wish to learn English as a second language or teaching other world languages to non-native speakers, our skilled faculty is excited to help you develop the professional skills and academic competencies required for second language instruction. TROY’s SLI practicum class provides students with unique opportunities such as teaching international students in the English as a Second Language (ESL) department.
Overall, your studies will help you gain proficiency, knowledge and skills through classroom instruction, the observations of experienced teachers and planning and delivery of instruction in their languages of specialization. Once you’ve graduated with your master’s from this non-certification program, you’ll be prepared to help others understand how languages are structured and acquired as well as how to learn a language that is completely foreign to them.
With English considered an international/global language that is a required skill for the majority of the world’s professional careers, the demand for English teachers is exceptionally high all around the globe. Even in English-speaking countries, such as Great Britain, the United States and Australia, there has been an increase in the number of immigrants coming from non-English speaking countries. This means opportunities to find jobs for ESL teachers are quite promising.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the employment of ESL teachers (grouped together with adult literacy and high school equivalency diploma teachers) is expected to grow 7 percent by 2024.
