Master of Arts for Teachers (of English to Speakers of Other Languages)

Degree Requirements

53-60 credits plus a second language are required.  The program is usually completed in six quarters.  Core requirements are spread among TESOL, linguistics, English and elective courses.  MATESOL students should try to complete Linguistics 400 (Survey of Linguistic Method and Theory) or its equivalent before entering the program.  (Credit for Ling 400 does not count toward the MATESOL degree.)

Additional Information

Staff in the English Graduate Office are available to answer questions concerning admission and program requirements.  In addition, a MATESOL adviser is available part-time during the academic year to discuss more specific coursework, program of studies, and the field of TESOL.
