We regret to convey that our MA program in French Language Teaching is ending, and the French program will be phased out by Summer 2022. We will still offer French SLI courses in 2021 and 2022, in order for our current MA students to complete their degrees, and can still welcome non-degree-seeking students seeking professional development credits on a space-available basis. Please see below for information on our curriculum and current course offerings.

  • Pedagogy courses which accompany each language or culture elective and focus on practical application of various pedagogical practices.
