The Master of Arts in Foreign Language Teaching (MAFLT) Graduate Program Handbook describes the MAFLT Program, outlines the steps in the application process, lists degree requirements, reviews the courses that are taught in the program, and describes the policies and procedures related to the MAFLT Degree Program at Michigan State University. If you have questions about the content of the MAFLT Graduate Program Handbook, please email the MAFLT Program at email@example.com.
As you enter graduate school and navigate your way through courses and assignments, the MSU Library will provide a wide range of important resources. Distance-based students including those in the MAFLT can access academic journals and electronic books just as you would if you were on campus, and you can also access physical books by requesting a scan of a chapter or even having the book sent to you. The MAFLT has a dedicated subject area librarian, Stephanie Perentesis, and she has created a library guide specifically for our program and and the work that our students do. You will also find contact information for Stephanie there, and you can contact her to ask for help with anything related to the library. Access our guide here:
Courses in the MAFLT Program at MSU are all online. For full participation, you will need reliable and fairly fast internet access, a webcam and microphone for virtual meetings and recording presentations, and Microsoft Office software or software that is compatible with it. Students and faculty at MSU can download Microsoft products at no additional cost. Go to spartan365.msu.edu and click the link to install Office in the top right corner.
Courses are administered through MSU's learning management system, D2L Brightspace (https://d2l.msu.edu/). When you enroll in a class, you will automatically be added to the D2L page for each course. When the instructor opens the course at the beginning of the semester, you will receive an email (at your MSU email account) to alert you that the course is open.

MAFLT courses have the same tuition for in-state and out-of-state students. Students must be officially accepted to the MAFLT Program to receive this rate. Lifelong Learners (see information under our FAQs or here) pay a different rate.
The current cost is always listed on the Student Accounts page of the MSU Controller's Office. On this page listed below, follow the links for Tuition Rates, Graduate programs, and "On-line Foreign Language Teaching Masters": http://www.ctlr.msu.edu/COStudentAccounts/. This year that cost is listed as $695 per credit, which means about $2100 per course. Fees and materials will add to that cost, but usually run less than $100 per semester.
