Rachel Mouw sought the opportunity to grow her skills through BVU's BAC+1 program with a focus in teaching English as a second language. Her goal through her education is to effectively communicate with English language learners and their families.
I always knew I’d want to get a master’s degree, but I didn’t know a master’s in teaching English as a second language was a possibility. My advisor asked me if I wanted to get a master’s and she showed me that I could take several classes as an undergraduate that would also count toward my master’s degree in this field.

It makes you much more marketable, and because the program only takes one additional year to complete, it doesn’t take you away from other job opportunities for two or more years like many other master’s programs do.
