PLEASE NOTE: The French M.A. program is not accepting applications for the 2019-2020 academic year. This will not affect any other programs.


We offer Master of Arts programs in French and Spanish. Both thesis and non-thesis programs are available. These two-year programs begin in fall semester and finish the following year in the spring semester. Scholarships are available on a competitive basis and generally consist of Teaching Associate positions. Students receive a tuition waiver and a stipend. The tuition waiver can also be applied to two summer sessions.

High school teachers can register to take graduate courses as non-degree students.

Other related opportunities include initiation into national language honors societies, and participation in study abroad programs.
