About Us

Our Program: Master of Arts in Linguistics (TESOL)

The Master's degree in Linguistics (TESOL) integrates the study of language theory with practical applications and focuses on the language acquisition needs of the adult or near-adult learner of an additional language. We provide our graduate students with the theoretical foundation and practical skills and experience they need to become professionals in the field. Our graduates go on to work throughout the United States and the world in classroom teaching, teacher training, materials and curriculum development, and program administration. 

Here, some students share their experiences.
