New Masters in Applied Second Language Acquisition at Carnegie Mellon

The Masters in Applied Second Language Acquisition at Carnegie Mellon
University in Pittsburgh, Pennsyvania is a one-year, intensive program
preparing U.S. and international students for careers in second language
teaching in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and English as a
Second Language (ESL). The program draws on strengths of the Department of
Modern Languages at Carnegie Mellon in the areas of second-language
acquisition, cultural studies, pedagogy, and technology-enhanced learning.
MA graduates will be eligible for employment in institutions of higher
learning, as well as in private schools or public
(alternative-certification) secondary schools, and (especially in ESL) in a
multitude of settings abroad. The MA in Applied SLA may also lead to
further graduate work in second language studies.

Prospective students include holders of undergraduate degrees with three
profiles: native speakers of English with a major in foreign language
studies, native speakers of English with humanities degrees and
second-language experience, and international students with degrees in
humanities and language-related fields. We admit students intending to
teach in one of the program languages—Chinese, English (ESL), French,
German, and Japanese.

The application deadline for the fall 2011 class is February 1st, 2011. For
additional information see the program website at
