The Teaching Foreign Language (TFL) program offers advanced entry to potential students who have completed coursework in applied linguistics or language teacher education.

Prerequisite Coursework

The ideal candidate for this advanced entry program has already completed coursework in applied linguistics or language teacher education.

Advanced Entry Curriculum

This 30-34 unit MATFL degree can be completed in three academic semesters: with a typical course load of 12-13 units in each of the first two semesters and 5-7 units in the final semester.

Upon meeting with our Academic Advisor, a course sequence which compliments your previous coursework will be determined. In order to be considered, the previous coursework must have been completed within the past five years with a grade of B (3.0) or higher. Assuming your previous coursework has included language pedagogy and introduction to linguistics, an advanced entry program might include:

First Semester

Second Semester

Third Semester

Please Note: Students who have completed foreign language courses at a high level in their teaching language may meet with their language academic advisor to determine if they qualify for fewer language units.
