Our Faculty

  • NOVA students observing teacher during lecture

NOVA’s College ESL program has more than 40 full-time faculty members and more than 70 part-time faculty members teaching across five of our six campuses.

All of our College ESL teachers have a master’s degree in TESOL, linguistics or a related field. Many of them also have PhD degrees. They have years of experience teaching a range of skills in many settings.

All full-time and part-time teachers in NOVA’s College ESL program hold college rank. This means College ESL faculty are professors, associate professors, assistant professors or instructors.

In addition to teaching, many full-time faculty members help to administer the College ESL program, working as assistant deans in their divisions.
