The Masters in Applied Second Language Acquisition at Carnegie Mellon University is a one-year intensive program preparing U.S. and international students for careers in second language teaching in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and English as a Second Language (ESL). The program, now inviting applicants for Fall 2020, draws on strengths of the Department of Modern Languages at Carnegie Mellon in the areas of second language acquisition, cultural studies, pedagogy, and technology-enhanced learning. MA graduates will be eligible for employment in institutions of higher learning, as well as in private schools or public (alternative-certification) secondary schools, and (especially in ESL) in a multitude of settings abroad. The MA in Applied Second Language Acquisition may also lead to further graduate work in second language studies.
Prospective students include holders of undergraduate degrees with three profiles: 1) native speakers of English with a major in foreign language studies; 2) native speakers of English with humanities degrees and second-language experience; 3) international students with degrees in humanities and language-related fields.
The application portal will open on November 29, 2019 with a deadline of February 3rd, 2020 for the Fall 2020 class. For additional information see the program website or contact the Directors or Administrator (see below). Inquiries are welcome!
