Foreign Language Education (FLE) is an internationally recognized interdisciplinary graduate program offering M.A. and Ph.D. programs in Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language and Foreign Language Education (Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, German, etc.). FLE prepares language teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and supervisors of second/foreign language programs.  FLE students work with outstanding faculty members from across the University completing core courses in language teaching methodology, second language acquisition, research methodology, and their language of specialization. Current FLE faculty research focuses on language learning strategy instruction, pronunciation and vocabulary development, second language reading and writing, program evaluation, new technologies for language instruction, intercultural development, and individual differences in language learning.
Please note: The Foreign Language Education program will not be accepting new graduate students for Fall 2014 and subsequent semesters.
