"The ORU College of Education is constantly working to make sure students receive the highest quality education possible. The English Language Teaching in the Global Classroom program enhances the professional opportunities available to our students upon graduation and allows them to develop necessary teaching skills that can be used both at home and abroad."

The College of Education at ORU is committed to providing opportunities for individuals responding to the call of God to become "transformed" professional Christian educators.

Around the globe, there is a high demand for skillfully trained English language instructors.

The program offers a combination of reading, English and English language learning (ELL) courses to ensure candidates acquire the content knowledge, pedagogical skills and dispositions needed to assist students in acquiring English language proficiency.
