Subject: New MA in SLAA

The foreign language departments at the University of Maryland at
College Park are pleased to announce a new interdisciplinary MA degree
in Second Language Acquisition and Application, starting in Fall 2001.

This two-year M.A. program has been designed for researchers, language
teachers, translators and interpreters, government service
professionals, social service employees, and all those interested in the
acquisition and application of languages other than English.

Students apply to a specific language department (French, German,
Russian and Spanish currently; Japanese and Chinese forthcoming) and
take advanced courses in that language as well as interdepartmental
courses in SLA.
For more information, see our website at:

Many apologies to those who have had trouble accessing the
Linguistic Olympics website recently, and thanks to those
who have helped me debug the problems. I believe it now
works properly with all popular browsers, and I again
encourage you to check out the site, and consider
contributing a puzzle or two in a language you know well.
This is an excellent way to make our discipline known among
secondary school students and teachers.
