Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Program Description: The Masters in Applied Second Language Acquisition at Carnegie Mellon University 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, now in its second year, 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, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and English as a Second Language (ESL).

The application deadline for the fall 2012 class is February 1st, 2012. For additional information see the program website at http://ml.hss.cmu.edu/ml/graduateprograms.html.
