In Response To: TEFL Minor vs TEFL Cert (Amy Bloch)

I just found out that my university offers a TEFL Minor without the certificate. I was wondering what the difference would be in terms of getting internationional jobs: Would they recognize a TEFL minor with no certificate? Or would most institutions require the certificate despite the extensive coursework in the TEFL minor?

It may be enough but would likely depend on where and who you expect to teach. Plus, you don't mention your degree major nor if you intend to do a practical component -- that all-important supervised and assessed teaching practice. (For example, my MA in Teaching path included a TEFL emphasis and 135-hour ESOL practicum.)

Check job postings to see what's required for your desired countries; it may make more sense to pursue a CELTA or SIT TESOL cert. But if you decide to do the TESL minor, clearly indicate your TESL coursework on your CV.
