​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The MA in TEFL at PUCMM is a theory and practice-oriented program based on recognition of the need for qualified teachers trained in an interactive and participatory model for teaching English as a foreign language. It is aimed at educators and English Language Teaching (ELT) professionals who want to upgrade theoretical and practical knowledge when teaching English to non-native English speakers. This program is built around the need to support national education in order to prepare teachers in both of these areas, allowing them to improve the teaching and learning of English as a foreign language. By offering this degree, we will have a group of qualified educators teaching English in the near future. The program consists of a series of specialized modules in the teaching of English as a Foreign Language and related disciplines, and a thesis.

The program favors an approach in which both oral and written communication are emphasized, in an environment where classes are highly participative, focused on the student, and where the creativity of the teacher and the use of a variety of resources are promoted. It also reflects a new educational model that proposes the formation of autonomous subjects. The learning theory that is favored is social constructivism, in a broad sense.

​By opting to study for a Master's degree in TEFL at PUCMM, participants are embracing a commitment to continuing professional development and personal growth, and are also enhancing their promotion possibilities. The program aims to strengthen participants' teaching and professional competencies in the teaching of English as a Foreign Language, thus elevating the effectiveness of their teaching performance. 

Besides the aforementioned admission requirements, international students must complete a special form, with the following documents attached:

University grade transcript (original), Diploma (copy), birth certificate (original).  All of these documents must have the Hague Agreement Apostille and must also be authenticated by the Dominican Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (MESCYT).

If the country where the documents are issued is not a signatory of the Hague Agreement, the documents must be legalized by the Dominican Ministry of Higher Education, Dominican Ministry of International Affairs, and the Dominican Consulate.
