The Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics provides students with a broad theoretical grounding and research experience in examining the dynamic nature of language and language learning, how languages are used to construct our sociocultural worlds, and how, in varied learning contexts, we learn about the world through language. Through both coursework and research experiences students have opportunities to develop scholarly expertise in language learning and teaching, language in society, language, health and aging, and methods of language study/research.
The M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language is designed for individuals seeking advanced professional preparation in the teaching of English as a second or foreign language in the U.S. or abroad. The program is aligned with theories of language that emphasize its social nature and focuses on learning in, from, and for teaching practice within diverse, multilingual societies around the world. All professional core coursework include field experiences in various ESL instructional settings.
