MA in Foreign Language Teaching

The Master of Arts degree in Foreign Language Teaching (MAFLT) is a fully online program housed within CeLTA. The program is intended for current and aspiring foreign language teachers. Coursework focuses on communicative and task-based language teaching principles and methods, as well as computer-assisted language teaching, language assessment, and language-program administration. Through online instruction and collaboration with faculty members and peers, students in the program receive a solid foundation in second language acquisition (SLA), applied linguistics, and learn how SLA theories and research apply to current foreign language teaching approaches, methods, and materials design.

The program comprises a high degree of interactivity in coursework, in customizable Experiential Modules, and through personal advising and mentoring sessions.
