This program of study covers a blend of theoretical and
practical issues, ranging from linguistics to ESL methodology; in addition, you’ll
have the opportunity for a one-semester supervised teaching experience.
Central courses include:
- assessment for second-language skills
- second-language acquisition
The applied linguistics track differs from the other two
tracks by requiring Research Methods in Applied Linguistics (ENG 668) and
Second Language Acquisition (ENG 658).
In the Applied Linguistics emphasis, you’ll take four
electives, two of which must be graduate TESL/applied linguistics courses.
One goal of this track is to prepare students for PhD level
study in applied linguistics.
Please refer to the academic catalog for specific course information.
