Second Language Teaching

Department Website mslt.usu.edu

The Master of Second Language Teaching degree (MSLT) at Utah State University is a 30-credit, cross-disciplinary program with coursework in Applied Linguistics and Teacher Education. MSLT students learn to be effective teachers of the languages in which they are fluent. To be eligible for admission, an applicant must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, have a minimum GPA of 3.0, and score in the 40th percentile or higher on the GRE or the MAT.

Courses in the MSLT are offered in the late afternoon and evening, making it convenient for working educators. While the MSLT program can be completed in four semesters of full-time coursework, the program is also offered in a part-time format.

Most MSLT graduates enter language-teaching careers in educational settings varying from preschool to college level. Others have found employment at the prestigious Defense Language Institute in California, and still others have gone on to pursue doctoral degrees at renowned institutions including the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Wisconsin.

Utah State University is a Carnegie Doctoral/Research Extensive university ranked among the top 50 research institutions in the country.
