Teaching Assistantships are available in English, French, German and Spanish for the support of Master of Arts students beginning study in Fall 2020 in the Linguistic Studies Program at Syracuse University.

Language Teaching Assistants must have native-like command of the language they teach. Outstanding applicants who are not chosen for a Teaching Assistantship may instead be eligible to receive tuition credits toward the completion of their coursework.

The Linguistic Studies Program at Syracuse University offers a US Master of Arts degree in any one of six concentrations: TESOL/TLOTE; Linguistic Theory; Logic and Language; Information Representation and Retrieval; Language, Culture, and Society; and Language Acquisition. The time of study is one and a half to two years.

The deadline for submitting an application for admission to the program is Jan 15, 2020, and application by this date is necessary if an applicant wishes to receive full consideration for a Teaching Assistantship. However, applicants may be considered after this date until all Teaching Assistantships are filled. Admission to the Program is continuous; in some cases, students may be able to begin in Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters. Note, however, that it is preferable to begin in the Fall semester, given that courses which serve as prerequisites for Spring courses are typically offered in the Fall term.

Consult the Syracuse University Department of Languages, Literatures & Linguistics Graduate Study website at for further details.

An application for admission to study in the MA Program is accessible here:
