What will I learn?

Learn. Create. Discover. Think and Do. With a graduate degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures, you can open new doors or take your career to the next level.

Our department offers a Master of Arts degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures with concentrations in French, Spanish, or the Teaching of English as a Second Language (TESOL). We offer a rigorous, flexible program that combines innovative coursework with hands-on research. Courses are offered in literature, culture, linguistics, second-language acquisition and teaching methodology. Students can focus on one particular area (e.g. literature/culture) or take courses in a variety of areas.

In addition, practicing teachers at the K-12 level who have an initial (A) license can earn the advanced (M) license as part of their Master's degree.
