Social & Behavioral Sciences


The purpose of the MA in Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Pedagogy is to provide students with the opportunity for professional growth in the areas of language proficiency, in-depth understanding of literature, civilization and culture, as well as research and teaching skills. The degree affords students the opportunity to continue their foreign language study at the graduate level with the option of working toward teacher certification.

This flexible Master’s Degree program has three options:

  • a single-major plan (30 credits)
  • a major-minor plan (36 credits) and
  • a double-major plan (42 credits)

The MA in Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Pedagogy can provide students with all the courses required for a teaching certificate in French, Spanish or German, except for student teaching, which is an undergraduate course of 9 credit hours. Students already certified can take as many as 15 credit hours in foreign language pedagogy courses or closely related fields. All students take at least half their courses in the foreign language and literature of their major field (French, German, or Spanish). This program also prepares students for study at the Ph.D. level in the field of Applied Linguistics. Students seeking teacher certification must take 33 credits. All other students must take 30 credits.
