Excellence in advanced degree training

Our department prepares leading language professionals of the future through a curriculum that provides a strong foundation in the structure, acquisition, and use of nonnative language systems. Our faculty includes internationally recognized second language acquisition researchers in the areas of assessment, language and identity, mental lexicon, neurolinguistics, pedagogy, phonetics and phonology, pragmatics, processing, semantics, and syntax. We are interested in both basic research and evidence-based classroom applications. We offer an M.A. in TESOL and Applied Linguistics, an M.A. in Second Language Studies, a Ph.D. in Second Language Studies, and a Graduate Certificate in TESOL and Applied Linguistics, as well as a Ph.D. minor in Second Language Studies.
