Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. I've some queries regarding ESL/EFL degrees. Plz do excuse me if my queries have been already answered on this forum. I am a Pakistani about to complete my BBA, 2 yrs programme (Bachelors of Business administration) from an accredited Online Pakistani university.But now I want to change my career path and want to pursue my career as an Linguistic/ESL/ESL teacher. I am looking for an affordable (around 5000US$ or a little more) accredited degree in linguistics/TEFL/TESOL from an online university. All positive suggestions will be welcomed.

Usually MA courses are on site but there are several universities which offer a combination of online and onsite degrees, and some which offer degrees by distance learning. The Open University for example is a long established UK university dedicated to distance learning. They have many undergraduate and postgraduate courses including an MA in Education. Their website is at http://www.open.ac.uk/

And browsing the Net just now I came across a UK College that offers MA TESOL which can be completed entirely online. I really don’t know anything about them or their programs but here’s the link for you to take a look: http://www.newschool.edu/matesol/

I also read that Alliant International University in California www.alliant.edu offers their MA in TESOL in an online format. Again I don’t know anything about them but you could look into it.

The University of Phoenix http://www.phoenix.edu/ also offers an MA in TESOL via Internet/Online Learning. Like Alliant’s, their program is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

You’ll find that if you do a search by key words there are many MA TESOL programs advertised. Just be careful which one you choose. Good luck!
