Mission Statement

The learning of second and foreign languages is a rich and fascinating process involving linguistic, psychological, and cultural and social dimensions. The Department of Second Language Studies is dedicated to scholarship on the structure, acquisition, and use of nonnative language (in both instructed and contact contexts). We currently offer (1) two MA programs and a PhD program designed to train the next generation of foreign and second language professionals as both researchers and teachers; (2) an undergraduate minor designed to provide a firm foundation in second language acquisition; and (3) an English Language Instructional Program designed to assist matriculated undergraduate and graduate students and an Intensive English Program designed to prepare international students for study at English-speaking universities.
