The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures offers a program leading to the master of arts in the teaching of languages (MATL) degree. Within the MATL, students concentrate on one of three emphasis areas: French, Spanish, or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The focus of the MATL is on developing and enhancing the knowledge and skills in language, language acquisition, and language instruction that are essential for both effective teaching and successful learning. The MATL is offered year-round, with the option of completing the program through summer-only registration and/or online course work. For more information on the MATL, please consult

The MATL brings together foreign language teachers and teachers-to-be from all parts of the United States and from several countries to share their experiences and significantly enhance their professional and academic training in an enriching, multicultural environment.
