Welcome to the online, Master of Arts degree in Foreign Language Teaching (MAFLT) at Michigan State University (MSU). This online master's degree (MA) program, housed within MSU's Center for Language Teaching Advancement (CeLTA), is for current and aspiring foreign language teachers. Coursework focuses on communicative and task-based language teaching principles and methods, as well as computer-assisted language teaching, language assessment, and language-program administration. Through online instruction and collaboration with faculty members and peers, students in the program receive a solid foundation in second language acquisition (SLA), applied linguistics, and learn how SLA theories and research apply to current foreign language teaching approaches, methods, and materials design.
The program comprises a high degree of interactivity in coursework, in customizeable Experiential Modules, and through personal advising and mentoring sessions. If you have questions about the program, I encourage you to contact us at email@example.com.
