Applied Linguistics programs
The Department of Applied Linguistics offers a B.A. in Applied Linguistics, a minor in Applied Linguistics, a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL), and an M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA TESOL).
The B.A. major in Applied Linguistics provides a strong foundation in both analytic and communication skills while building students' understanding of the structure and use of human languages. It also serves as strong preparation for graduate study. A minor in Applied Linguistics allows students to integrate the development of language analysis skills and a basic knowledge of language structure into a major in another field. The Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language provides thorough undergraduate-level preparation for teaching. The MA TESOL provides graduate-level preparation for teaching, language consulting, and research.
