Graduate Students


The master of arts in World Languages, Literatures and Linguistics gives students the opportunity to expand their language knowledge in a linguistically diverse environment, experience literature from a variety of perspectives and be immersed in culture. The program has concentrations in Spanish, Linguistics and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). You have the option to combine two of these areas of emphasis as a major field of study, giving you the flexibility to tailor the program to their needs. 

As a graduate student, you are encouraged to become professionally active and participate in a variety of departmental and professional language and culture activities, such as language conversation tables, clubs, foreign films, cultural outreach to schools and the community and state, regional and national professional conferences. 

Our students have gone on to pursue careers in a variety of areas with an international dimension, including business, government, the travel industry and missionary work.
