Applied Linguistics, MA (On-campus)
Our program includes concentrations in bilingual education, ESL instruction for English language learners (ELLs), and foreign language pedagogy. We also offer a Latin track in collaboration with the Department of Classics. This degree offers teachers a chance to combine further study of Latin with coursework in theories of language acquisition.
Students have the opportunity to conduct research, work with community-based organizations or prepare to teach in various contexts, such as public schools, K-12, adult education, and language schools in the United States and abroad. We offer three types of graduate assistantships: teaching, research, and administrative.
Nearly 25% of our students come from outside the United States, contributing to a culture of linguistic and cultural diversity that enriches the department’s intellectual and social life. Our students also represent a variety of American minority groups.
Prospective students need not have teaching experience to be considered for acceptance into the program.
We also offer an MA degree online option that combines our faculty’s expertise and our long tradition of excellence in applied linguistics studies with new technologies for on-line delivery and e-learning.
