This four-course sequence (12 semester hours) is valuable for anyone who wishes to gain more knowledge of second/foreign language learning.

It is designed to meet the needs of K–12 language arts instructors who want more information but not necessarily state validation; writing instructors at two-year colleges; and students who would like to enter doctorate programs in applied linguistics, English as a second language, or second language acquisition. Students gain an understanding of issues of language acquisition and language pedagogy.
