Masters of Arts
The MA Language Teaching Studies (LTS) is an intensive and comprehensive 15 month (5 quarter term) Masters of Arts program designed for the second, foreign, or indigenous language teacher, i.e. the teacher of EFL/ESL (English), JFL/JSL (Japanese), CFL/CSL (Chinese), SFL/SSL (Spanish), Sahaptin, Tolowa Dee-Ni’, etc.
This unique MA program, housed within the Department of Linguistics, provides a solid foundation in the principles of second language acquisition and pedagogy while allowing specialization in teaching one or more languages. Many of our students specialize in teaching English, or in English and an additional language, but a certain percentage focus only on a language other than English. Applicants to the program should already have the expected proficiency in the target language(s) typically required for teaching positions in the language(s).
