Master of Arts in
International Language Education
The MA program in International Language Education offers an advanced English-taught postgraduate education in two specialized concentrations: Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL), and Teaching Chinese as a Second Language (TCSL), for qualified candidates to teach English or Chinese as a second language. The program aims to prepare language professionals for a dynamic global career, with a solid foundation in applied linguistics and research-informed language teaching approaches. A new dual degree pathway in collaboration with the University of Southern California (USC) is now available. Students who select the credential track pathway could obtain the California teaching credential that allows them to teach Chinese as a Foreign Language in local primary and/or secondary schools.
